In pursuit of a green earth, Travis Ranch ASB is collecting clothes and shoes to raise funds for the school. For every pound of clothes collected in the drop-box the school earns money through a fundraising program with USAgain, a clothing collection company that resells clothing throughout the US and abroad. The money raised will go toward student programs and events.
According to the US EPA, less than 15% of all clothing is diverted from the waste stream for reuse. Each year more than 8 million tons of clothing is land filled in the U.S. This is a waste of resources, energy and a source of pollution to our environment. The school’s drive is a win-win situation: we protect the environment while generating funding for important causes. The USAgain drop-box is located in the school parking lot next to the gym. It is available 24 hours a day, 12 months of the year. Feel free to donate gently used clothing and shoes at any time.
