Sustainable Students is a fun, simple and educational fundraising program presented by SCRgroup. This program supports Australian pre-schools, schools and clubs to raise thousands of dollars each year while diverting reusable items from landfill and providing global communities with affordable clothing and employment.
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 for our future generations 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.
Schools can choose between Clothing Drives or Recycling Hubs.
In 2018, SCRgroup is running a competition for the schools the collect the highest average kilograms per student. The top 5 schools that achieve this will each receive an additional $1,000 to go towards their fundraising.
