Spring Greening 2018
Don’t Just Spring Clean –
When you clean out your closets and donate children’s essentials to Cradles to Crayons® this Spring, you’re not only supporting kids in need with the clothing, books, and other items they need for success, you’re also keeping valuable resources from becoming landfill waste!
Our Spring Greening initiative runs from March through May and focuses on the importance of material donations–because they keep our model moving all year round. In addition to help recycling your new and gently used goods, Spring Greening also helps support a healthy environment!
This initiative includes the Fifth Annual Metroplex May Day product collection drive. More information on this event is included below.
Did you know the average American citizen throws out 82 pounds of clothing per year?
Fabrics that end up in landfills produce toxic greenhouse gasses that are emitted into the atmosphere—which is dangerous for our environment and hazardous for our health.
Countdown to Metroplex May Day
Items We Accept
Please go through your closets and dressers to identify good-condition clothing, shoes, lightweight jackets, winter coats & snow boots which your children may have outgrown since last year. We also need new or gently-used books, toys and baby gear. Some critical items, such as socks, underwear, pajamas, and baby hygiene products (lotion, shampoo, pacifiers, etc.) must be new when donated.
