PTO MEETING - MARCH 8th
"SHED THE EXCESS THREADS" CLOTHES BIN CHALLENGE
Who: All 7 Sycamore Schools competing to be the winner
How: Collect the most textiles during the challenge period
What: Shoes, clothing, rags, towels, blankets, sheets, stuffed animals, etc.
Why: 85% of textiles end up in the landfill. These will be recycled and our schools will earn 7 cents for every pound. Collect more, earn more! Money goes into the school accounts!
Winning school will be recognized with an award and featured on social media.
*Did you know??? The average American discards approximately 70 pounds of clothes, shoes and textiles each year. Most of these items end up in the local landfills, which amounts to an astounding 16.9 billion pounds of preventable waste each year. We need your help to reduce this number!
