Phil the Bag clothing recycling initiative

Phil the Bag are passionate about sustainability. They aim to lead the way in tackling textile waste and inspire, engage and support schools, clubs, charities, community groups and business organisations to improve the impact they have on society through fundraising from textile and clothing recycling, by reducing landfill and offering a financial reward to those participating in their project.

‘Phil’ the Bag is a FREE clothing recycling initiative… Helping you raise funds from your textile recycling donations.

“Now paying £350 per tonne!”    (As of 11th May 2015 their NEW price will be £350 per tonne (35p/kg))

The setting up of a ‘Phil’ the Bag clothing collection and all associated administration is totally FREE.
Furthermore you may organise as many textiles collections as you wish during the year, so there is no limit to how much money you can raise for your school!

We recommend a summer and winter collection or if you really want to boost school funds, why not have a collection each term?

They would love to hear from you, to discuss the Scheme. So please call for further information or to book a collection.
