Thursday, 12th April Dear Club Secretary,

Bag2TheFuture Ireland is a nationwide company who specialise in fundraising for Clubs, Schools and Community Groups, through the collection of good quality unwanted textiles.
The scheme is a free ‘off the shelf’ solution to fundraising and it encourages members of your club and community to participate, producing maximum rewards with a little effort. Every club has the same possibility to achieve excellent results.
There are 3 main aspects to our service:

1) Assist with fundraising for your club/group/organisation
2) Assist with fundraising for CanTeen Ireland (ROI clubs/groups only)
3) Assist to ensure good quality unwanted clothing is going to provide affordable clothing in developing countries and not ending up in landfill or shredding facilities.

This simple action will reduce the carbon footprint associated with the manufacture of clothing.

The process is simple and free.

We provide personalised leaflets to hand out to each member We provide promotional material to help advertise We collect & weigh on-site This in turn will create awareness on the fact that used clothing can provide affordable clothing in developing countries Reduce the carbon footprint associated with clothing manufacturing We will pay you €/£0.50 per kg or €/£500 per tonne, which will be paid by cheque to your organisation On top of this we will donate an additional €/£0.05c per kg or €/£0.05 per tonne to the CanTeen Ireland (ROI only) Your organisation can make a difference
