Donation arriving in Jamaica

Jamaican classroom before donation


Your old, used, surplus and redundant school furniture and equipment will make such a difference to so many people and put smiles on the faces of children across the globe.  When you donate to Zoot you will:

  • Better equip students across the world by supplying them with the resources needed to improve their learning environment.
  • Allow the passionate teachers in these countries to become even better teachers with additional resources and equipment.  Read 'How Schools Benefit'.
  • Save money - no skip charges or transport costs.
  • No landfill taxes. (Presently £80.00 plus per tonne).
  • Gain more hours in the classroom.  No wasted time organising the collection of surplus furniture.
  • No caretaker costs moving furniture to the tip. See actual 'Cost of Life' of a product.
  • Prevent adding to the thousands of tonnes of furniture and equipment from the educational sector alone, going to landfill.
  • Prevent thousands of cubic metres of methane and CO2 gases being released into our atmosphere.
  • Extend the useful life of your furniture by approximately 20 - 40 years and save more greenhouse gases being released through re-manufacture.
  • Enhance the reputation of your school by actively recycling items.
  • Have an opportunity to set up a collaborative long-term project with schools who received your unwanted furniture and equipment.
  • Help everyone involved to benefit.

Zoot have assisted foundations and charities to supply your much-needed used furniture and equipment to Jamaica.  Twenty of the most needy schools in Mandeville, Manchester and St Elizabeth parishes have benefited from receiving over 14 tonnes of your surplus school furniture.  On this page we’ve shared the photographs of tomorrow’s bright stars and the donated furniture.
