The Eco-Team is excited to announce we have partnered with Bag2School again to collect unwanted used clothing to raise funds for Eco-Team initiatives.


Each student has gone home with a postcard explaining why it is important to recycle clothing and what items are accepted (ALL adult and children’s clothing, footwear, outerwear, towels, purses, scarves, lines, handbags, etc).


Clean your closets, go through your stored boxes, find clothes that don’t fit and put them in them in any bag or box you have at home!


Bring the bags to Kiss n’ Ride on Tuesday May 22nd 4-6pm and Wednesday May 23rd 9:30am-12:30pm.  


The more we collect, the more funds we raise and the Eco-Team is hoping that we bring in at least 1 ton of clothing!


Let’s make a difference by donating clothes for those who need them more.


Every $ collected will help get us a step closer to making Boyne a greener place!
