Schools across the country are again taking part in the popular ‘Cash for Clobber’ competition, run in partnership with Eco-Schools and Cookstown Textile Recyclers. This great method of being environmentally friendly by recycling also raises some welcome funds for the schools taking part - 40 pence/kilogramme.
Schools which collect the most textiles per pupil are in with the chance to win the annual ‘Cash for Clobber’ competition with fantastic prizes of up to £1,500. The closing date for the competition this year is 30th June 2019.
Cookstown Textile Recyclers are the only BSI certified clothing recycling company that Eco-Schools recommends. Clothing collected is redistributed to developing countries around the world or recycled into industrial fibers.
Schools who would like to get involved are asked to call the Cash for Clobber Team on 028 9447 8880.
