Partners in Project Green’s Recycling Collection Drive is an employee engagement campaign that supports organizations to collect clothing and household textiles, helping to divert waste from landfill and engage employees about sustainability.
Recycling Collection Drive 2022
This past October was Waste Reduction Week and Circular Economy Month in Canada! Partners in Project Green organized a Recycling Collection Drive to recycle clothing and textile waste with Diabetes Canada. Organizations that registered for the Recycling Collection Drive helped divert waste from landfills and engaged their employees around sustainability.
Our target was diverting 12,500 pounds of clothing and household textiles from landfill. PPG is excited to announce we surpassed our goal, diverting a total of 21,473 pounds (9.74 tonnes)!
