Clothes Recycling Initiatives for Schools in Canterbury
We know that schools, colleges and universities in Canterbury are already helping to pave the way to a greener future, and we are appealing to all educational establishments to incorporate our clothes recycling campaign into your current eco-initiatives.
Through education, practical initiatives, and innovative strategies like smart bins, schools can be not just talking about sustainability, but actively living it.
As these initiatives become integral to the educational experience, schools will not just teaching lessons, but also will be cultivating a mindset that will shape a more sustainable world.

Students, faculty, and staff can be encouraged to donate clothing items. Collection points or recycling units can be set up for easy donation and collection, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Just get in touch if you would like your establishment to be involved!
As a thank you for helping us raise awareness and providing much needed support to our partner charities, we will pay £400 per ton or 40p per KG – this could mean a minimum of £1200.00 per year (if you donate a ton of clothes and items per calendar quarter!) providing vital funding for your school.
