St. Mary’s College students along with Community Resources Network Ireland (CRNI) greeted the many Arklow community members who donated preloved clothing and home textiles on Wednesday, 25 May. The 100 bags collected and weighed by the students on the day will benefit SVP – Vincent’s Charity Shops East Region and provide information for CRNI’s innovation and demonstration project, Developing a Circular Textiles System for Ireland, being piloted in Arklow. The project is funded by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Enterprise: Innovation for a Circular Economy grant-aid funding programme.
