Motorsport Australia and S-Trend reduce carbon footprint together

Wednesday 10 January, 2024
Motorsport Australia and S-Trend worked together to recycle thousands of plastic bottles in 2023.
Motorsport Australia and its merchandise and apparel partner, S-Trend, have combined to improve their carbon footprint in the apparel sustainability space in 2023.

The Australian apparel company reached some remarkable achievements last year as it implemented several initiatives across the year, with its most notable being the introduction of STRenew sustainable teamwear. 

Emerging as leaders in crafting sustainable custom teamwear within Australia, S-Trend’s newest range of fabrics are all derived from technical, sustainable fibres transformed from recycled plastic bottles.

In 2023, the company transformed more than 670,000 plastic bottles into teamwear apparel for all its merchandise partners, including Motorsport Australia.

With Motorsport Australia opting to throw its support behind the initiative, the two organisations collaborated to transform 8686 plastic bottles into traceable and certifiable eco-performance polyester, which was ultimately used in uniforms for administration staff and volunteer officials.

In addition to its successful STRenew initiative, S-Trend has also earned Gold certification under the Worldwide Responsible Accreditation Production (WRAP) program for its production facility's ethical standards.

S-Trend is proud of the achievements reached both in collaboration with Motorsport Australia for the STRenew program, as well as its progress in sustainability as a whole.
