Factsheet Workwear package for Rijkswaterstaat
Rijkswaterstaat posts stewards at locks in the summer season to guide leisure craft. They wear recognisable workwear, which is replaced every season. The project involves a pilot with a circular workwear package for 56 lock stewards. The package was leased for a two-season period (May 2015 - October 2016). (June 2017)
The annual replacement of the stewards' workwear proved to be a great opportunity to develop a circular model with which Rijkswaterstaat can contribute towards the circular economy. Together with the market they investigated business models to handle raw materials efficiently. Rijkswaterstaat started collaborating with a market party for a two-year lease contract.
