In the spirit of promoting rewear and reuse, we have partnered with Value Village® to challenge all Ontario and British Columbia secondary schools to organize an in-school clothing collection drive for used clothing (textiles) during Waste Reduction Week in Canada 2018. Participating schools are eligible to win up to $2,500 for their school’s environmental initiatives. Prizes will be awarded based on their collection, social media, community engagement, and innovation efforts in the 2018 #IGiveAShirt Challenge. Not interested or able to collect clothing for the challenge but still want to take action on textiles waste for Waste Reduction Week? Schools have the option of participating in other prize categories.
