Thursday 8th May
Phil the Bag visited school and collected all our bags. We had collected a huge pile from people in school and in the village. The clothes are taken to Birmingham to be sorted and some are sent to Africa but if they are too damaged and cant be worn again they are shredded and then recycled into new cloth.
Our bags are weighed and we then get money for them. We use this money to help fund eco projects around the school. We are hoping that some of the money this time will be used to improve the garden area to the right of the front door of the school.
We will be having another collection in the Autumn so please start collecting again now. We were the first school to recycle our clothes with Phil and we are still collecting a huge number of bags - so please do continue to support this!
