SGS Textile Recycling Drive

Posted on : October 21, 2021

The Sligo Grammar School TY  Green Schools Committee have been busy this term. They organised a series of “climate aware”  events for Climate Action Week from 11th to 15th October, airing a documentary titled “The True Cost” which highlighted the social and moral issues around cheap clothing. They are following this up by organising a textile recycling drive on Wednesday 3rd November. They are inviting students, parents and friends to donate unwanted clothing to the recycling drive. They hope that the act of gathering unused clothing, together with the airing of “The True Cost” will make students and their parents make  more informed choices about “fast fashion”. Please support the collection, all proceeds will help to raise funds for Sligo Grammar School Green School projects.  Clothes should be left in the foyer by Wednesday morning 3rd November, and the collection will take place at 12 noon. 

The following clean and dry items are suitable for recycling:

  • Men’s, ladies and children’s clothing,
  • bedding,
  • curtains,
  • towels,
  • paired shoes,
  • belts and handbags.
