The Super Recyclers Grant

We highly encourage schools to choose specific projects to fund. The project will be detailed on your personal page on our website, one of the tools we make available to you to promote your clothing drive in your community. The projects don’t need to be approved by us.

  • Following the great success of the last two years with the Super Recyclers Grant (see the winner of the 2016–2017 grant), the Super Recyclers will not only continue to offer a chance for a school to win an additional $1,000 to fund their project or an additional project, but will also add a $500 grant for participating Daycare Centres. The draw will take place in June 2018, at the end of the school year, and the prize will be awarded at the beginning of the school year 2018–2019. All schools and Daycare Centres participating in the Super Recyclers campaign during the 2017–2018 school year will automatically be entered in the draw. (Please note that only drives where the school mobilizes its community on a specific date will be entered in the draw.) The winning school and Daycare Centre will be informed after the draw and a video will be uploaded to the Super Recyclers website, broadcast through our social media, and added to www.humago.ca.

    Thanks for participating to the Super Recyclers movement and to allow young people to become heroes for their community and for their planet!

  • We are happy to announce that, after having created several partnerships throughout the past year, for the 2016–2017 school year, we will also be offering the Super Recycler’s Young Philanthropist Grant, which applies to the students.

    How does it work?

    There are only three simple steps to follow to qualify your school for the Super Recycler’s Young Philanthropist Grant. A student (or a group of students) must shoot a 3 to 5-minute video which will be published on the website of the Super Recyclers before May 1, 2017. This video will explain the local cause that is being supported, why it was chosen and the actions that have been made (or will be made) by the students to support it. One of these actions must be to organize a clothing drive with the Super Recyclers during the 2016–2017 school year (the drive can be held after the video is made, so long as it is programmed for the 2016–2017 school year). The objective of the programme is for participants to become active spokespersons for a cause during the school year. The Super Recyclers will donate $1000 to the cause in the name of the winning school. The Super Recycler team will make a first selection of the videos that will be featured on their website (as well as on their Facebook page) and a popular vote will be held to choose the winning project. Keep an eye on this site and our Facebook page to find out more in the coming months on how to send us your videos.

    In the meantime, here are some guidelines about the three steps to follow for the students:

    Step One: Research

    • Choose a local social/environmental cause that you want to support.
    • Why have you chosen this cause? What attracts you to it?
    • What can you tell us about the cause?
      • About its history? Its mission?
      • What are its objectives and values?
      • Where can we learn more about it? (Web sites, YouTube, etc.)

    Second Step: Become a Spokesperson

    • What steps can you take to make a difference? How will you do it?
    • How will you organize the Super Recyclers clothing drive for your fundraising?
    • Will you form a committee?
    • How will you raise awareness for your cause?
      • What will your message be?
      • Have you thought of a slogan?
      • Will you use promotional tools (posters, Facebook page, cupcakes sale, etc.)

    Third Step: Funds

    • Explain exactly what the funds from the Super Recylers grant and from the clothing drive will be used.

    For example: To plant trees in your neighborhood; To purchase new books for the library; Etc.

    The Super Recyclers reserve the right to adjust the terms and conditions of the scholarship at any time.

Since the launch of the Super Recyclers movement, more than 275 schools have participated and more than 200,000 kilos of clothing and textiles have been recycled or reused. Stacked, these textiles would form a 20-story building! The Super Recyclers funded more than $52,000 for projects in participating schools.
