Love this New Way to Fundraise from Old ' Stuff '

December 14th, 2012 at 08:50 am

Match made in heaven! Recycling reusing and reducing consumption of STUFF while earning cash. It's a new company called Angel Bins. Our high school has decided to give it a try this January and I am going to spread the word.

It just involves collecting used things such as shoes, clothes, books (see the list below). This little company pays you for the stuff and turns around and "exports clothes and shoes that are wearable to third world countries as a low cost alternative to new clothing. Angel Bins also converts damaged clothing like sweaters and overcoats into yarn eventually made back into new clothing. Lastly, Angel Bins takes stained clothing and resells them as cleaning rags to companies like Home Depot."

They note that a one-time fundraiser averages a couple thousand dollars.

I love that it has 75 employees and is an independent small business too.

Here's the list of desired things:

Wearable clothing
Wearable Shoes (pairs)
books
bed sheets
drapes
comforters
bedspreads
purses
belts
knapsacks
hats
CDs or DVDs

Instead of adding to your own yard sale, instead of donating to the local thrift, try this with your school, animal shelter or other group.

Smart!
