HAVEP MAKES WORKWEAR FROM OLD TEXTILES

Strong, durable workwear made from 75% recycled material, made in Europe and with a serious saving in CO2, water and energy. That’s quite a mouthful but at HAVEP, we are working to ensure this dream becomes reality.

CIRCULAR ENTERPRISE FROM AN UNEXPECTED CORNER

It turns out that the 5,000kg in offcuts that are leftover every month are the perfect filling for punching bags. And so we got together with the producer of these bags and gave a second life to our leftover offcuts. It’s creative ideas like these that give us a positive injection of energy. So be sure to share your sustainable ideas… for knock-out results!
DEAR HAVEP, I’D LIKE TO SHARE THIS SUSTAINABLE IDEA WITH YOU

A LIVING WAGE VS. MINIMUM WAGE

We want all our employees to come to work with a positive feeling. Which is why everyone at our workshop in Skopje can count on receiving a living wage and not just minimum wage. Because the former is standard at HAVEP.

Old clothing, what do you do with yours?

Every year, around 75% of all clothing ends up as refuse waste awaiting incineration. A sad story we are pleased to give at least a happy ending. With our collect & recycle service, we make recycling easy and ensure that unwanted clothing is given a second chance! Hurrah!
