We are taking part in the Cash for Clobber scheme again this year as we work towards our second Eco-school Green Flag award. The scheme is aimed at raising awareness of textile recycling among children and to show how essential it is for everyone in the ‘developed world’ to reduce, reuse and recycle and is also a great way of raising funds for our school. Schools which collect the most textiles per pupil are in with a chance to win the annual ‘Cash for Clobber’ competition with fantastic prizes of up to £1,500.
On Wednesday 19th September, we are having our next bag drop collection. Bags of clean, unwanted textiles may be left in the school assembly hall next week for collection by Cookstown Textile Recyclers, one of the Eco-school program partners, who will sort and recycle. Low grade material is used for industrial wipers and fillings, good quality clothes are re-used in the developing world.
Why not have a post summer clear out of old and unwanted items? Perhaps you could encourage family and friends to donate their unwanted textiles too?
What can you put in the bag??
All types of clothing (even with holes
Many thanks for your continued support.
