empowering through education
Empowering young people to be responsible clothing consumers is a core part of our activity at ApparelXchange.
This has been limited due to the impacts of COVID-19 and new operations at schools.
Find out loads more about our ongoing work with schools and educators below.
we work with schools providing;
reuse services for clothing, donation drives & managing
We supply schools with donation bins, materials and all the advice needed to make donation drives happen, collecting everything from uniform, party wear, trainers, and more. These are a fantastic way of getting pupils and the community involved in carbon reduction activities. We also help ensure lost property gets the care or repair it needs and goes on to find a new home.
we recommend these resources;
a fantastic variety of interactive powerpoint presentations, activities, challenges and quizzes, suitable for different stages from age 6+
