Bag2School (Canada) Inc.
56 McMurray Avenue
Toronto, ON, M6P 2T1
Bag2School (B2S) was founded in the UK and has been in operation since 2001. Over C$12 million has been paid out to more than 18,000 schools across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, Holland, Canada and the USA.
B2S is not a charity, but is committed to giving back to both schools (through fair rates for used clothing) as well as to the community (through charitable donations).
Absolutely nothing. We provide all the support to organize the collection FREE of charge.
Any clean clothing in reasonable condition, soft toys, shoes (tied together please), belts and purses.
We pay the current market rate and fix this each year. The current rate is $200 per ton. This price may increase over time, depending on the quality of clothes donated and repeat collections.
Contributing clothing to B2S directly reduces the volume of textiles sent to landfill sites. In most western countries, 6-12% of landfill waste is made up of discarded textiles. Instead of being thrown away as garbage, quality textiles can be re-used as affordable second-hand clothing in developing nations, where wages are often as low as a few dollars a month.
