About us

At Happy School Bag we offer schools the opportunity to raise funds and at the same time to help our environment by keeping valuable and reusable resources out of landfill. We specialise in collecting and buying quality second hand clothes, working together with the pupils, parents and teachers to fundraise, recycle and educate. The scheme is suited for schools from playgroups to colleges as well as other organisations. This cost free programme actively promotes recycling at school and encourages children to become involved in waste reduction.

How our scheme


The Happy School Bag scheme is free, quick and easy


Simply fill in the online booking form or contact us by telephone.



We will arrange a suitable collection date and time.


Once a collection date has been confirmed we will send you our green collection bags along with advertising posters to help you to advertise collection around the school.


The children take the bags home and fill them up with unwanted clothes, paired shoes and accessories.


A courtesy call will be made a couple of days before your collection date to confirm that you are ready.


The children bring the bags to school on the collection day and our driver arrives on the arranged time.


The bags are weighed on our calibrated scales.


Once the collection has been weighed on our calibrated scales, a BACS payment is transferred directly to your designated Bank Account for a sum based on the total weight that was collected.


Your feedback is important to us as it helps us to identify areas where we need to improve and evaluate changes.
