Breathe new life into your old clothes!
All three installations of the La Prairie Child Care Centre have chosen to partner with the Super Recyclers to finance the development of their courtyard while making a gesture for the environment! Families, neighbours, local businesses: mobilize and bring us your old clothing and textiles from April 16 to 18 before noon, directly at the Child Care Centre located at 725, boulevard de Palerme, La Prairie (Québec) J5R 6B2!
Accepted materials: 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 child care centre take advantage of that?
- 2500 litres of water are used to produce a cotton t-shirt; for a pair of jeans, 11,000 litres are used.
- 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.
