Organization's description

Textile Race inspires kids to be the circular pioneers of the future. We provide education about the current status of our fashion and textile industry, it's unsustainable practices but more importantly the examples of doing good! We combine education with a fun collection campaign. Schools engage in this action-campaign and collect, swap, repair en recycle old textiles and involve as many people with this project as possible. This way we make circular textile fun, educational and easy. In 2020 we organized our first race and in the mean time we already organized nine races throughout the Netherlands and collected more than 100.000 kg of old textile en the children did more than 1600 repairs.
