altNew Cregagh Road Shop
Tuesday 29th May 2012
After many years on Cregagh Road, the time came for both a move and a new look and our new shop can now be found at 79 Cregagh Road.

Recycled Rags

Wednesday 2nd February 2011alt
Don’t bin it, black bag it! Every time you clear out wardrobes and closets, there is always a pile of clothes, shoes; towels and bed linen that you might think aren’t fit to donate to charity.Don’t chunk them in the bin! War on Want NI can turn these rags into riches. These black bags of rags can be sold for recycling to help War on Want NI continue its work with some of the poorest countries in Africa. Every bag of rags donated is carefully weighed and raises 50p pe
r kilo.

A typical black bag can bring in about £5, which can buy the equivalent of two chickens. These chickens are used for breeding and eggs are sold, providing income for educational and medical expenses.If you sold a black bag of rags for £5, what would you spend it on?

For most of us, £5 might cover a sandwich and a cup of coffee. Recycling black bags can boost a War on Want NI shop’s income by 10%, so every bag counts.War on Want NI has been fighting to alleviate poverty for 50 years. We rely on donations and sales in our 13 retail shops to help us work in partnership with some of the most vulnerable people in Africa.

Donations can be dropped off at any War on Want NI shop or call our office on 029 9023 2064 for other arrangements.
