All collections and associated administration is FREE. Bag2School will provide you with clear bags and marketing material to promote your fundraiser.
We offer the best market price 50p per kilo which is £500 per tonne of clothing.
Bag2School's clothing is for reuse, i.e. someone will buy the clothing to wear. Recycle is where clothing will be shredded into raw material, that will then be used to make new products, like mattress fillings. Reduce is applicable when less material and energy is used to make the product.
The success of the collection depends on how motivated the pupils turn out to be. Therefore each child is given the responsibility by Bag2School to fill up their own bag and take it back to school.
Many schools do not have storage space to store bags of clothing for an extended period. All clothing can be brought to the school before 9am on the collection date. The collection will take place between 9am - 1pm circumventing any storage problems - the bags can be held outside, but the bags must be kept dry.
In the event of inclement weather please protect your B2S investment by covering with a plastic sheet or storing the bags undercover. Wet clothes cannot be re-used.
As far as Bag2School is concerned, as many times as this is opportune and feasible. Most schools benefit from a summer and winter collection. However, in larger schools we find once a term produces the best results. We find that the pupils and their parents anticipate by saving up for the following collections.
We do indeed – head over our promotion tips page for ideas on how to make the most from your collection, banners and flyers that you can print out.
