SMART has created lesson plans and educational worksheets that you can use in your classrooms to teach students about Textile Recycling. These lesson plans and worksheets are designed to meet the Common Core Standards required by schools. SMART first created these materials in 2012 in conjunction with The Education Center as a part of a marketing effort to teach elementary school students about textile reuse and recycling. From 2012-15, the program reached over one million students in the United States. Educators continue to utilize these materials today to educate students and create awareness about textile recycling.
SMART has developed materials that you can utilize to educate and spread the word in your community.
