Montreal, June 21, 2018 – The Super Recyclers held the annual draw for their two grants. The Super Recyclers movement was born out of a desire to help the community and do good for the environment, but above all to develop a philanthropic and mutual aid culture among young people in Quebec.
We tend to recycle a lot in our communities. Glass, plastics, paper – we sort every week and prepare everything for collection and recycling. But what about our old clothing and fabrics? Couldn’t we recycle them too? 190,000 tonnes of textiles are thrown away by Quebecers every year! Why not have your school benefit from this?
Thanks to all the schools and daycares that participated in the Super Recyclers clothing drives this year. Since the launch of the Super Recyclers, nearly 400,000 kilos of recycled clothing and textiles and nearly $100,000 in projects have been funded.
We congratulate students, parents, management and child care services as well as teachers from every participating school.
