How Clothes Bin® at Schools Contributes to a Greener Future for Our Planet

The environment is paying the price for fast fashion and the ease of buying with the press of a button. About 85% of all textiles end up in landfills. Although several billion pounds of this waste is recycled each year, it’s not enough. However, Clothes Bin®, the first and only textile recycling franchise, offers a way to improve awareness in your local schools while simultaneously deriving economic benefits.

Our eco-friendly clothes recycling bins offer a semi-absentee business model that promotes the environment in your community. Plus, when a Clothes Bin is placed on K-12 school campuses, the next generations benefit from developing a keener sense of stewardship. Here’s how it works.

Why Place Clothing Recycling Bins on School Campuses?

Younger generations are more likely to be climate change activists. They want to make a difference, but they need more opportunities. One of the reasons why so much textile waste ends up in landfills is the lack of easy access to green initiatives. Our recycling programs for K-12 schools can provide an opportunity to participate in proactive measures to protect the planet.

By placing our Bins on school campuses, school administrators or potential franchisees can take the lead in encouraging students and the local community to take steps toward greater responsibility for clean air.

Two Possibilities for Textile Recycling Programs for K-12 Schools

You can still promote sustainability even if you aren’t a school administrator or teacher. Clothes Bin® offers a clothes recycling franchise opportunity. Our innovative business model helps reduce landfill waste and gives new life to clothes and shoes throughout the country and worldwide. As a franchisee, you may work with school administrators in your territory to place Bins on their campuses.

Clothes Bin® also offers a franchise business opportunity for schools. If you are a school administrator looking for fundraising opportunities, Clothes Bin® can fit the bill. The process is straightforward. Simply place one or more Bins on your school campus and spread the word about your new fundraising program. Your school parking lot can provide a go-to spot for anyone looking for a convenient way to recycle.

You can raise awareness at sporting events, school plays, and on the school’s social media accounts to encourage the community to recycle. Your school will receive funds for each pound of textiles–which could go toward replacing old textbooks, funding enrichment activities, or after-school arts programming.
