Champlin-Brooklyn Park Academy, a K-5 school for math and environmental science, is one of USAgain’s valued site sponsors in Minnesota. USAgain’s goal is to divert all textile waste from landfill and give clothing a second life in the process. This is a goal that wouldn’t be possible without Champlin-Brooklyn Park Academy.
The Academy is a fully environmental school operation in Minnesota’s largest school district. Champlin-Brooklyn’s Green Team of parents and teachers is active in composting, recycling and donating surplus food to churches and homeless shelters. The Academy’s textile recycling bin serves as a drop off point for the rest of the district – other schools collect unwanted clothes and bring them to Champlin-Brooklyn for recycling.
Partnership between USAgain and Champlin-Brooklyn Park Academy makes all the sense in the world. Through partnership, the Academy’s students are taught another valuable recycling lesson, and more clothes are given a second chance and saved from entering landfills as harmful waste.
Working with schools and educating youth on the importance of recycling is a key objective for USAgain, which makes site sponsors like Champlin-Brookly Park Academy so valuable.
