Chef clothing company Denny’s Uniforms has declared a used jacket amnesty for all chefs’ jackets to be handed in to its London stores.
From 19 March to 30 April 2012, the company will be accepting used chef’s jackets from any brand and in any condition, in return for a 25% discount on new jackets from their existing ranges.
Managing director for Denny’s Uniforms, Nick Jubert, said: “We hope kitchen brigades across London will get involved so we can donate hundreds of old jackets to TRAID, (Textile Recycling for Aid and International Development).
“Their recycling policy not only helps the environment by reducing landfill and shrinking carbon footprint but in addition, all profits go to help the world’s poorest communities with health, education and employment.”
Chefs can take old jackets into Denny’s Soho at Dean Street, or Denny’s City store at Watling Court.
