GrowNYC is a resource for any New Yorker who wants to create a healthier city, for themselves, for their neighbors and for the next generation. GrowNYC provides opportunities for making sustainable choices and actions a permanent fixture of NYC—textile recycling, building-wide and school-wide recycling programs, healthy eating at their 54 Greenmarkets, composting, school and community gardens, reuse opportunities like Stop ‘N’ Swap events, and much more.
Your donation today means more gardens, greenmarkets, cleaner air and water—a greener and healthier New York.
*The non-deductible portion of each ticket is $25, as this reflects the fair market value of goods and services to be provided at the event.
It takes over 700 gallons of water to manufacture one cotton t-shirt and one-third of a pound of pesticides to grow the cotton used for its production. The manufacturing process for a pair of jeans uses approximately 400 mega joules of energy and emits as much carbon dioxide as driving 78 miles. And that is just the beginning, since almost half of the environmental impact of an apparel item comes from consumer use and “end of life,” resulting in 14.3 million tons of textile waste generated every year in the United States alone. Curious to know what all this means and what we can do to limit the environmental and social impacts of the clothing we wear every day?
This month, our forum will explore the subject of eco and ethical fashion. We will discuss the current state of the industry and introduce designers and manufactures working to build a greener future for the apparel sector. Don’t miss this intimate conversation and have your questions answered by thought leaders in the field of sustainable apparel.
