CQUni ReUse Clothing Drive Collection/Drop Off locations

CQUni ReUse

The CQUni ReUse Clothing Drive aims to support students by providing quality items of clothing for internships, job interviews and placements as well as meeting the university's pillar of sustainability by providing clothing that may have otherwise ended up in landfill. Fashion is becoming increasingly disposable for Australians, with over 1/4 of people admitting to throwing out clothing after just one use and 4/10 people admitting to putting items of clothing in the bin rather than taking them to their local charity shop.
Donations of clothing will be accepted at various collection points to be available to students free of charge later in the year. Staff and community will also be able to select items of clothing in exchange for a donation to CQUnicares.
