EcoKids isn’t just about raising money for schools. It’s designed to help sports and youth clubs as well.
When you’ve decided that EcoKids is the right fundraising option for you, then please complete the registration form.
Once you’ve registered with us, a friendly member of the EcoKids team will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient collection slot.
When a collection date has been booked, it’s time to tell everyone. Our colourful and informative leaflet can be downloaded from this website and circulated electronically. This leaflet should encourage everyone to use their own bags and check the list of items we accept and don’t accept. We collect from any address that is convenient for you i.e. from your home or clubhouse.
Don’t forget to allow plenty of time to distribute the leaflets and to tell everyone about your campaign by displaying leaflets around the school and your local community.
Two days before collection you will receive an email just to make sure that everything is still ok for the arranged date & time.This is also to ensure there are a minimum of 50 full bags ready for collection.
On collection day our EcoKids driver and van will arrive at the designated collection address. Our EcoKids driver will collect the clothing bags, weigh them and issue you with a receipt. Upon his return to the depot, the contents will be checked. The items that we can’t take, will be rejected, weighed and deducted from the initial weight on your receipt. These results will be emailed to you and then we will send you our payment!
The results of your collection will be emailed to you within 7 days and will include a colourful Certificate of Achievement.
We aim to make our payments by BACS twice a month.
The collected items are then recycled to deprived families including countries in Eastern Europe and Africa where they are given a second chance to be loved.
The money raised went towards costumes for our annual show which was 'Annie' and was staged last month.
The kids of my Performing Arts School were fantastic, costumes can be very expensive and every little bit of fund raising really does help.
A massive thank you from all the pupils of Stars Stage School!
I have used EcoKids clothes recycling for the last 2 years. They have helped my gymnastics club raise over £2000 in just 3 clothes collections.
I find their staff very helpful and they always arrive on the day and time given so there is never any hanging around wasting time.
I would recommend Ecokids to anyone who wants to raise funds for their own good cause.
Our gymnastics club wouldn't be where it is today without the help of Ecokids!
Thank you and see you again soon.
Fantastic scheme, such an easy way to raise funds and make use of old textiles that would otherwise fill the loft or go to landfill! Each step easily explained and friendly helpful man collecting. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely do another collection. Donna - Maidstone Baton Twirlers.Donna - Maidstone Baton Twirlers
