Turn textiles into treasure


Textiles (large version)

Do you want to be named the best school in Dorset for textile recycling?

All schools in the county are being encouraged to take part in a fantastic competition to turn textiles into treasure. The challenge is to collect the highest amount of textiles per child in each school.

The winning school will be awarded £600 for each tonne collected.

This is a great yet simple way to help the environment, promote and encourage textile reuse and recycling and raise funds for extra resources for schools.

Here’s a list of accepted textiles:

  • Clean clothes
  • Sheets and towels
  • Paired shoes
  • Belts and handbags
  • Curtains
  • Fabric and blankets
  • Soft toys

The good news is that each participating school will receive £300 per tonne of textiles collected.
