After receiving a poignant email from Fashion Delivers regarding the recent devastating environmental disasters in the Southeastern states, we felt a responsibility to do our part to help the people in need.
Fashion Delivers is an incredible organization dedicated to unifying the men’s and women’s apparel and home industries to donate new product in order to aid victims of disasters and individuals in need throughout the year. For more information please visit: www.fashiondelivers.org.
Taking the opportunity to continue cleaning out our office, and to help a few more folks out, we donated 3 large bags of gently used clothing to Wearable Collections.
Wearable Collections is a tremendous organization that has identified a problem: “386 million pounds of textiles enter the NYC waste stream annually, representing close to 6% of total waste.” And they came up with a solution: “Wearable Collections provides a no cost, turn-key solution to recycling clothing within residential buildings in NYC. We handle all the logistics from placement of bins and promotion within the buildings to scheduling weekly pick-ups.” The benefit: “Through our established network we distribute your discarded clothing around the world to people who need it, enabling us to raise money for charitable organizations.”
Many thanks to these organizations for their hard work and dedication to making it easier for folks to make a difference.
