Community Recycling KIDS is a unique textile recycling program that is designed to promote REUSE while educating children about diverse cultures in far off places. In addition to helping the environment and teaching our kids about recycling and sustainability, the students will participate in a global mapping project where they will learn about where their items for reuse go and the diverse groups of people who get it.
The more your school collects for reuse, the more you help to raise awareness and earn rewards. In addition to the possibility of connecting with the people in the countries where the ‘stuff’ lands, your collection also serves as a fundraiser for your school. Lets all be great green ambassadors of the planet. Or as we like to say, People Recycling for People.
Every student will go home with 2 bags, a flyer that describes the program and a Pledge to Recycle Textiles For Reuse.
Fill the bags provided with clean, dry, reusable and re-wearable clothes, bags and belts.
If you fill the 2 bags and have more, no worries. We accept any type of bag.
Ask family, friends and neighbors to help fill the bags.
The more you collect, the more you are rewarded and have the ability to connect to kids in other countries.
Bring your filled bags back on pick up day.
