Campaign Overview

Reusable Shopping Bags

WHY REUSABLE SHOPPING BAGS?
Reusable Shopping Bags are an easy to sell, everyday product for fundraising. They are great quality, colourful and easy to carry around. 100% of the profit from a fundraising campaign goes directly back to your school.

HOW IT WORKS
Each student is provided with a bag containing 12 Reusable Shopping Bags to sell into their communities. Students can sell as many as they like. Money collected from sales is placed into the envelope provided and returned to the school office. Prizes are awarded to students and classes to encourage sales.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOUR SCHOOL?
The cost to your school for each Reusable Bag is $3.50, so anything over and above that goes directly back into your school.
You can sell each bag for $5.00, $6.00 or $7.00 making either $1.50, $2.50 or $3.50 for each bag sold.
That means each bag of 12 Reusable Shopping Bags sold can return up to $52.50.
Many classrooms will raise over $1,000 and some more than $2,000.

WHO WILL BUY THE REUSABLE SHOPPING BAGS?
1. Family, friends and neighbours (please take an adult if selling in your street).
2. Parents can help by taking them to work and selling them.
3. A stall on the main street, social media and asking local retailers to sell Reusable Shopping Bags are all ways to sell successfully.
4. Just about anyone because Reusable Shopping Bags are an incredible way to save our planet and stop plastic bag pollution.

PRIZES
There is a lot to be said for the feeling kids get from working together for a common cause but we have found that the promise of some great prizes can make the difference between a good fundraising event and a great one.
