Confederation partners with Sic Sox to advance sustainability in Northern Ontario


Confederation College is partnering with the textile recycling program Sic Sox Circular Ltd. to help individuals in Northern Ontario boost their sustainability efforts. Through this partnership, Confederation will enable the placement of Sic Sox collection boxes throughout the community and citizens will be encouraged to donate used textiles that are in any condition. Once collected, Sic Sox will resell usable items or convert landfill-quality materials into industry-approved housing insulation. “Not only does the box prevent textiles from going into our landfills, but it also allows for perfectly good items to be resold at affordable prices, effectively promoting a culture of reuse within our region,” said Confederation Manager of Applied Research and Sustainability Robyn Gillespie.
