Steps to sustainability: JDA pioneers planet friendly dancewear

JUMP Dance Academy is spearheading the way to sustainability with new uniforms made from recycled ocean waste. Students are getting kitted out in the planet friendly dancewear across our dance classes in Worcestershire and Warwickshire.

The uniforms are manufactured in the UK using fibres made from nylon waste and abandoned fishing nets, which have been rescued from oceans around the globe.

The material is also infinitely recyclable, making it a more environmentally conscious choice than many other fabrics used in the production of dancewear.

Protecting the environment is more important than ever. It’s something I strongly believe in and I know it’s something that young people care a lot about too. Fast fashion is extremely damaging to the planet and I wanted to find a way that we could reduce our impact as a school. What's more, as a teacher, it really matters to me that I am doing the right thing for the next generation.

The new uniforms are being worn with pride by children across the our branches in Droitwich, Inkberrow and Henley-in-Arden.
