Breathe new life into your old clothes!
For its annual fundraising campaign, the Pépinot & Capucine Daycare Centre is mobilizing for a grand clothing and textile drive. Families, friends, get involved and drop off your clothes on from April 16 7 am to April 17 11 am, directly at the daycare centre located at 1165, rue Émile-Zola, Sherbrooke (Québec) J1L 0C4.
This drive will raise money to develop the outdoor courtyard, so that children will have a playground more adapted to the various climatic conditions. The campaign will also allow the purchase of new toys for outdoor use.
Accepted equipment: All the clothing for men, women and children, handbags, scarves, hats, gloves, furs, shoes, sheets, towels, curtains, leather accessories, as well as toys in good condition. We only accept what is in good condition and can be reused. Heavily soiled and dirty clothing will be removed before weighing. The Super Recyclers are not able to accept pillows, carpets and skates.
The Super Recyclers mobilize the community around an eco-socio-responsible movement to finance concrete projects through the collection of used clothing. The more young people, parents and the community get involved, the more it pays.
Why recycle clothing and textiles?
- 190,000 tonnes of textiles are thrown away by Quebecers every year. Why not let your daycare centre benefit from that?
- 2500 litres of water are used to produce a cotton t-shirt; for a pair of jeans, it is 11,000 litres.
- It takes 1 to 5 years for wool gloves or socks to decompose. For leather shoes, from 25 to 40 years, and textiles, from 100 to 500 years.
