Matalan Iniciatives


Matalan is always looking at ways to minimise waste creation throughout their supply chain. 

They now re-use all their clothes hangers as part of an official re-use programme, with each re-used hanger saving 34% of carbon emissions versus a new hanger. They have eliminated single-use carrier bags and introduced bags for life and are working on replacing all plastic carrier bags with FFC approved paper bags by 2022.

They are proud to be one of the nineteen British brands working with The Duchess of Cambridge and the Baby Banks Donations Initiative by donating collectively over 10,000 new baby essentials to over 40 baby banks, helping support vulnerable families in the UK.
