Sport into Schools
What is Sport into Schools?
Sport into Schools collects unwanted textiles and exchanges them for new sports equipment in the lead up to the Olympics and beyond. It is an official part of the London 2012 Inspire Programme.
As well as earning sports equipment for their school, children are also caring for the environment and their community by helping to divert textile waste from landfill.
