Clothing Drive – Let’s celebrate Earth Day!

On April 20th 2024, from 10 am to 2 pm, the Parents’ Committee of St. Johns School is hosting a Super Recyclers Drive. Stop Fast Fashion, simply drop off your donations into the Super Recyclers’ trailer in front of the school.

Your donations of clothing, bedding and small toys will be reused and redistributed. Therefore, they must be in a good condition. Those of lesser quality will be recycled. The goal of this event is to raise awareness and reduce overconsumption within the community.

The more parents, youth and the community get involved, the more it pays. Thanks to you, according to the weight amassed, this clothing drive will allow Super Recyclers to donate funds to our school to finance projects.

Stop Fast Fashion: 20% water waste; 85% goes to landfill; 35% microplastics; 10% carbon emission.

GO RECYCLE! More planet, less plastic.

We ask parents to avoid plastic bags and replace them with old pillowcases, jeans or old sheets, or compostable paper yard bags. DO NOT USE BOXES IF POSSIBLE. The school that successfully completes a 100% textile drive might qualify to earn an additional $100 towards their fundraiser.* (Please see criteria). For ideas on how to use these materials, see the video on YouTube:

Accepted equipment: All the clothing for men, women and children, handbags, scarves, hats, gloves, furs, shoes, sheets, towels, curtains, leather accessories, as well as SMALL toys in a good condition without missing pieces. For example, a farmhouse without the animals or a puzzle with missing pieces will not be accepted by the Super Recyclers. We only accept what is in good condition, clean, and can be reused. Heavily soiled and dirty clothing as well as broken toys will be removed before weighing. The Super Recyclers are not able to accept pillows, carpets and skates.
