We understand how important school fundraising is to support extracurricular activities and educational resources. However, traditional fundraising methods like selling chocolate bars and wrapping paper can be costly, time-consuming, and not very eco-friendly. That’s why we want to introduce you to an alternative fundraising idea that can benefit both your school and the environment – clothes recycling.
Why Choose Eco-Friendly Fundraising?
Schools are not only responsible for educating students but also for creating a sustainable future. By choosing eco-friendly fundraising, you can teach your students about the importance of environmental stewardship, reduce waste, and raise funds for your school. Eco-friendly fundraising also shows your school community that you care about the environment and are taking steps to reduce your carbon footprint.
Benefits of Clothes Recycling as a Fundraising Idea
Clothes recycling is a win-win fundraising idea that can benefit both your school and the environment. When you recycle clothes, you divert them from landfills and give them a second life. By recycling clothes, you can reduce waste, conserve resources, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
In addition to the environmental benefits, clothes recycling can also be a profitable fundraiser. We pay (up to 40p/kg) your school for donated clothes.
How Clothes Recycling Works as a Fundraiser
To get started with your fundraiser, you’ll need to get in touch and organize bags, a recycling box or a recycling bank for your school. We accept all sorts of everyday clothes, as long as they’re in a re-wearable condition. This includes shirts, jumpers, t-shirts, coats, jumpsuits, dresses, skirts, jeans, trousers etc.
Next, promote it on your social media and all parent groups. It is vital that you promote your fundraiser and let everyone know what you’re raising funds for, parents and relatives are much more willing to help if you have a goal in mind (eg. taking kids to bowling).
Once you have a full bin or box just contact us and we’ll empty it for you. You will then receive your raised funds within 5 working days from the collection.
