C4CC group from Kettlethorpe High School
Thank You to the many schools supporting Aid2Africa by working with the recycling scheme
Youngsters at Kettlethorpe High school could teach the rest of a thing or two about sustainability and recycling. They have teamed up with a local textiles recycling company to try to keep old and unwanted clothing out of landfills. The name they came up with was Clothing for Closer Communities or C4CC. They are working towards getting as much suitable clothing as possible sent out to Africa. The recycling company have been involved in this for some years and their experience and desire to keep waste to a minimum is exemplary. The group is getting as many schools involved as they can. For every ton of clothing collected a school, they receive £550 and Aid2Africa gets £50. The scheme is in it's early days but already the charity has received enough money to buy furniture for a new classroom.
Recycling clothes to Africa generates employment and a source of cheap clothing for thousands of people living on or below the poverty line in many African countries.
