Kingly are Finalist in the “Green Company of the Year” category at BizX Awards. The event celebrates the achievements, values and contributions of businesses and their owners across the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The award ceremony took place in London from 20-21 April 2023.
Kingly’s mission is to minimize the negative impact of the textile/apparel industry. Our company had the chance to put the spotlight on our zero-waste sock knitting facility. And explain the benefits of using sustainable promotional products for our customers’ advertising campaigns and giveaways. However, this acknowledgment wouldn’t have been possible without the support and guidance of acknowledgment from Action Coach who is navigating our company towards business excellence.
We applaud positive change because we realize that fast fashion leads to the mass production of cheap clothes. This brings significant environmental and health issues. For instance, to make a single cotton t-shirt, 2 700 litres of fresh water are required – enough to meet one person’s drinking needs for 2.5 years. Washing synthetics releases about 0.5 million tonnes of microfibers into the ocean a year. A single laundry load of polyester clothes can discharge 700,000 microplastic fibres that can end up in the food chain, based on a report by the European Parliament.

During the BizX Business Forum that preceded the award ceremony, Kingly’s Founder Rob Armour was inspired by the talks of Lord Sebastian Coe, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Mary Portas, Marcus Sheridan and many other exciting speakers. The event can motivate, and generate productivity and growth throughout any company.
