London Linen Group launches trouser amnesty

Chefs are being asked to send the London Linen Group their trousers in return for a free new pair of EkoChef trousers, made from 21 recycled plastic bottles.

The trouser amnesty, launched at Hotelympia, will see the group trade the old trousers for cash, which in turn will be donated to industry charities Hospitality Action and Springboard.

The new product follows the success of the EkoChef jackets, which launched late last year.

As well as recycling plastic bottles, the environmental benefits of the trousers include an 80% reduction in energy used to manufacture them.

Around 2.1 tonnes of CO2 is saved for every 1,000 trousers produced and landfill and green house emissions are reduced.
