As a school we are becoming very aware of our individual and collective responsibilities in relation to sustainability and climate change. We are also trying to encourage a collective move from a ‘linear economy’ and towards a more ‘circular economy’ where we look towards initiatives that promote reducing, reusing and recycling materials where possible.
Ratoath College is currently working with the Green-Schools programme to help take practical actions to mitigate and adapt to climate change. ClothesPod is a sponsor of the Green-Schools programme, aiming to bring further sustainability and environmentally friendly solutions to our school. ClothesPod are 100% Irish with over 25 years’ award-winning experience in the textile recycling industry, employing over 50 people full time in Ireland.
ClothesPod is asking you to participate in a clothing collection day in our school. Bring in all suitable, unwanted clothing, shoes and bags to help us make a positive impact on our environment. For more information visit ClothesPod.ie.
Please do bring in all new or second-hand clothes to the reception area in Ratoath College any day before Friday 10th of February as we have arranged for ClothesPod to carry out a textile recycling drive on Friday 10th of February at 9:00 a.m.
The following clean and dry items are suitable for rewear/recycling:
- Men’s, ladies and children’s clothing
- Paired shoes
- Belts and handbags
