School uniforms

School uniforms

What?

Anything made of material or fabrics is a textile and should not be placed in your general or recycling bin.

Where?

Clothing and textiles should be placed in a clothing bank or donated to charity.

Why?

We need to keep clothes and textiles out of landfill. Landfills create greenhouse gases so reducing the quantity of materials disposed of in landfill is very important.

 

General Comment / Tip

If you have NEW, unwanted or barely used items these can be donated to charity. Some schools organise uniform swaps at end of year – why not suggest this at your school?
