"Allow your donated clothes to start their second life in the new world of the circular economy and raise incredible funds for your school at the same time!"

 

Who are we?

We are a free fundraising scheme, established in 1999, for anyone wanting to raise funds using a resource EVERYONE has got in their wardrobe – unwanted clothes. We work in partnership with Schools, Businesses, Community Groups, Local Councils and Charities to help them raise funds from your donations. We operate throughout the UK; collecting and selling your unwanted textiles to importers and wholesalers in many countries of Eastern and Western Europe, Africa and Asia. All to benefit the Circular Economy.

How does it work? We will arrange a mutually agreed date for our van to arrive at your school or organisation to collect the bags. Our driver will load the bags directly onto the van. The collection is then weighed and we send the school a cheque. Simple!

B2S has paid over £28 Million to schools and other organisations SO FAR!

 

How it works

We all have clothing in our wardrobes that we haven’t worn in ages! In a world of fast fashion, we now have a lot of stuff – but when it comes to a clear out what do you do to make sure the environment comes off best?

Bag2School has the answer – we’ve been helping schools for over 15 years and in the process paid out over £28 million to PTAs and Friends of School Groups and many other organisations. The More We Weigh the More We Pay.

 

STEP 1, 2 and 3

We have registered your school and arranged collection dates. The collection will be weighed and the school will receive £0.40 per kg, which will fund improvements to the school.

 

STEP 4

The clothes collected from your school are baled into big ‘botany bales’ and then loaded onto trucks for export. Once they arrive at our customer’s factory, they are sorted into 150 different types of clothing depending upon the end market.

 

STEP 5

The clothing will make journeys all over the world starting their new life! This can be a purpose built second hand store in Eastern Europe or South America, or a market stall in East or West Africa, providing valuable employment for importers, warehouse staff, transport companies and stall holders as well as affordable clothes for local people.
