The week of June 5 is designated as National Environment Week in Canada and NBACL wants to remind New Brunswickers that it’s also a great time to donate gently-used clothing, extending the life and reducing the amount of textiles going to landfills.
Here in New Brunswick, NBACL is doing its part to reduce the amount of clothing being thrown out through our Community Collection Program.
The Community Collection Program helps NBACL to fund and offer programs which support children and adults with an intellectual or developmental disability and their families. NBACL offers programs in the areas of childcare, employment, education, community inclusion and transition from school to work to name a few. Funding from each and every donation stays here in New Brunswick and helps countless people every day. We can’t stress enough how thankful we are to those who donate their gently-used clothing and small household items to us.
Anyone can donate gently-used clothing and small household items, and NBACL makes it easy. You can easily drop bags of used clothing or small household items at any of NBACL’s Big Orange Bins (BOBs) found in communities around New Brunswick: click here to find a BOB near you. NBACL also picks up donations for free in the Fredericton, Moncton and Saint John regions. Simply call us toll-free 1-866-622-2548 to arrange a free home pickup.
Throughout National Environment Week, NBACL will be reminding New Brunswickers about the environmental impacts the textile industry is having and how, by donating gently-used clothing, we all can reduce our collective environmental footprint.
