#PasstheBag: Recycle Clothes and Help Schools

April is a time of new beginnings for us. Spring is finally in the air and Earth Day helps us to remember to take care of our environment. It does create more work; I get an itch to clean the house and this is the first year I’ll have a real vegetable garden. But one idea reverberates inside me:
all you need

Part of the challenge of the spring purge is to find homes for all the decluttered items. I like to make sure our old clothes help someone who needs them, rather than get sold to raise money for charity.

Schoola #PasstheBag recycling challenge

I was excited about the #PasstheBag campaign from Schoola that collects used women’s and children’s clothes in order to purchase books, art supplies, musical instruments and other items that area schools need for students.

Would you be interested in helping? All you need to do is request a donation bag from Schoola and share, if you want, on your social media using hashtag #PasstheBag.

Schoola pass the bag recycling for schools

What will this do?

  • Reduces water consumption by avoiding new clothing production – up to 5,800 gallons per bag!
  • Reuses loved pieces that are too-soon outgrown.
  • Recycles funds back into school programs that are experiencing budget cuts. For every $5 spent at Schoola, $2 is donated to schools.

With just one bag of clothes … the impact is tremendous with reverberating positive consequences.

It’s easy to take the #PasstheBag challenge. Request a donation bag from Schoola. Would you try this in your community? I hope you do!

p.s. Schoola is running free shipping site wide for a limited time and if you share my referral link found here, my readers instantly get $15 dollars to shop Schoola. So that’s free shipping + $15 for my readers when they use my referral link.
