Breathe new life into your clothes!
The four Belle-Vallée schools of the Maskinongé region are mobilizing for a grand clothing and textile drive. Families, friends, get involved and drop off your clothes on November 7 and 8, directly at École Marie-Immaculée, at the Community Centre located at 11, rue Marcel, Maskinongé (Québec) J0K 1N0.
You may also drop off the clothing at these schools:
- École St-Justin, located at 1180, route Gérin, Saint-Justin (Québec) J0K 2V0
- École Rinfret, located at 1831, rue Rinfret, Sainte-Ursule (Québec) J0K 3M0
- École Saint-Joseph, located at 40, rue Saint-Aimé, Maskinongé (Québec) J0K 1N0
The more the community mobilizes, the more it pays for the school. The funds will be used to finance projects for students.
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.
