Our fundraising and education school programs cater for primary and secondary schools. The purpose of our programs is to educate future generations about the importance of clothing reuse and recycling, while raising funds for important school projects. Our programs help students divert reusable items from landfill, instead giving the items a second life in global communities where they are needed the most. Schools can choose:
- Clothing Drives (schools are paid 0.10c per kilogram collected)
- Recycling Hubs (schools are paid $250 per year)
- Classroom Incursions (available from March 2018)
Since 2015, the program has reached over 35,000 students, saved almost 100,000 kilograms from landfill and raised over $23,000 for participating schools. It’s easy to organise, promotes sustainable behaviour and raises much needed awareness on our throw-away fast-fashion lifestyle. Students are provided with collection and sustainability reports that demonstrates the positive impact they have on the environment when they reuse and recycle. It also equips students with important skills to make better decisions with their unwanted clothing and household items.
This year SCRgroup will be running a competition for the top 5 schools who collect the most kilogram per student (to make it fair for our smaller schools). The top 5 schools will each receive $1000 prize money.
