Recycling and reusing have become essential to preserving our planet and eliminating waste. When it comes to recycling clothing, everyone may want to participate but the reality is that much of our clothing gets thrown away instead. Why? It may just be a matter of convenience.
The City of New York, in partnership with Housing Works, has created re-fashioNYC, allowing clothing donation from the comfort of your own home. This partnership allows participating apartment buildings donating services at no cost to the building or to the taxpayers. It is a program that is expected to grow as more building management catches on. And hopefully, more towns and cities!
When my good friend Sal sent me this picture from his NYC apartment building I was encouraged and inspired. This is a good thing: It’s good for New York, good for our planet. And it’s Turning Fashion Inside Out!
