AFTER:WORK was set up in London in 2016 as a brand to enable used personal protective equipment (PPE) to be given a second life as upcycled bags and other fashion accessories
In the United Kingdom alone, over 1500 tonnes of PPE is discarded each year. Approximately 90% of this is sent to landfills or incinerated.
By using approximately 90% of the PPE it collects in the manufacturing of its bags, AFTER:WORK is playing an important role in reducing the amount of wasted PPE which ends up at landfills.
AFTER:WORK products are functional, hard-wearing and fashionable.
