Textile recyling is the new GREEN

Monday, April 3, 2017

It's an idea that packs a triple punch.  Recycling textiles helps the environment, generates money and lightens the load for those looking to do their spring cleaning.

The Bayview Glen Student Executive Council and the Parent Association have joined together for a fundraiser this month with a green twist - just in time for Earth DayThe Textile Recycling Campaign involves an arrangement with a local Textile Waste Diversion Company that will give the school 10 cents for every pound of textiles we donate. An average full garbage bag weighs 20 lbs. So for example, Bayview Glen will receive $10 for every 50 bags collected. The money will be put towards future environmental initiatives. The drive runs right up to April 19, 2018.  The bins are located in the Shops at both campuses.

What is being collected: ANY clean and dry textile, even if its ripped or stained.
