Textile recycling for a good cause
Bags of Support
Horsham based mother of 3, Karrie set up Bags of Support in 2012. She was frustrated by the amount of textile waste produced in this country and the simultaneous need for clothing abroad. Karrie has lots experience of schools and PTA and was well aware of how important but difficult and time consuming fundraising can be for schools.
This great Horsham community organisation helps to raise money for schools, prevent textiles from going to landfill* and provides an ongoing supply of clothing and shoes to poor families in Romania.
There is no limit on the number of collections you can have but Bags of Support recommends one a term for the best results.
The clothes need to be clean and in good condition.
They say “Ask yourself if this item is something someone else might want to wear or use? If the answer is yes, then bag it up for Bags of Support!”
Contact Bags of Support (BoS) to set up a recycling scheme or a one off collection to raise money for your school, charity, community initiative or to support BoS work!
* 1.2 million tonnes of household textile waste goes to landfill each year.
