Earth Day 2015

earthday2015If you are anything like us, we imagine that you celebrate the Earth most every day. But April is that time of year when we get a chance to show that love outwardly.  There are many ways both  big and small that we can show our appreciation for Mother Earth. Here are a few ways that together we can turn tiny acts into big impact.

Request a Bin for your building – A bin in your building is the gift that keeps on giving. Both you and your neighbors will never know how you lived without one.

Host a drive for your organization/building – Not everyone can have a permanent bin nearby but that shouldn’t stop you from benefiting from our service. We will help you create a one day or multiple day event that will help your community keep clothing out of landfills. We are flexible and creative. Put us to the test!

Visit a local GrowNYC greenmarket – Where else can you recycle clothing and shoes while supporting farmers and producers from the region.

Whether you are an individual who wants to bring our service home, or an employee who would like to share it with their colleagues, we are eager to find a way to work with you.

Check out our new textile recycling bin!

wcbin_newsletterLike any other forward thinking company, Wearable Collections continues to evolve. We are extremely pleased to announce the roll-out of our Clothing, Shoe & Textile recycling bin 3.0.

We will be swapping out our existing bins for the new and improved ones early 2015. But you don’t have to be an existing collector to reap the benefits of these new beautiful bins. Now is a perfect time to sign up your building. No New Yorker should be without the convenience of a clothing and shoe recycling bin nearby!

The average New Yorker tosses 46 pounds of clothing and textiles in the trash each year, totaling 6% of our entire residential waste stream. But with your help, landfills are going on a diet. More than 80,000 New Yorkers have helped NYC lose 1.4 million pounds by recycling unwanted clothing, linens, paired shoes, hand bags and more through textile recycling initiatives.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Rather than having your residents haul their clothing to a collection site, or worse, dump them in the trash, Wearable Collections can pick up (free of charge) any unwanted textiles. You can arrange a pick up at your convenience monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually or Wearable Collections can place a receptacle in your building for your recycling convenience that is emptied on a regular basis. The goal is to reduce clothing in landfills while helping raise funds for non-profits. It is easy to do!

EASE & CONVENIENCE
Wearable Collections’ goal is to maximize clothing recycled while minimizing inconvenience to you. If you are interested in participating in our clothing recycling program,Wearable Collections will find a way to work within your building’s constraints.

Home Pick-Ups Anyone?

homepickupsWe are always trying to make clothing recycling more convenient. Well, what could be more convenient than recycling from the comforts of your own home?  Keep in mind we can’t be driving around this busy city for one bag at a time. That just wouldn’t be environmentally efficient nor economically viable. But if you do reach these minimums for your area, we will gladly come right to you.  If the minimums seem to large for a personal donation, engage your neighbors. That’s what Wearable Collections is all about!

Minimums (in large kitchen bags)
Manhattan – 5
Brooklyn – 20
Queens, Bronx, and Staten Island – 35

SPONSOR our Brooklyn Mobile Clothing Collection Unit

bluebetty_300Take a look at the shining light of our life, Blue Betty. Good ole Betty has treated us well over the years, but we have always had bigger dreams for her.  We would like to take this blank slate and turn her into a vehicle that not only looks beautiful, but also provides the service of clothing recycling to under-serviced neighborhoods throughout the borough of Brooklyn and beyond.

Come along and lets make history together with Betty.

Drive for 10 Million lbs

10milAt the end of last year we got so caught up celebrating our 10th anniversary that we almost forgot a major accomplishment, we were soon to surpass 10 million lbs collected as a company. With a little over 100,000 lbs to go, we are expecting a to blow through that mark by the beginning of April.  This is an accomplishment we can all share together.  Host a drive and help us in our final push to 10 Million lbs. Collecting used clothing can sometimes be a thankless job but along the journey to 10 Million lbs we have met so many great people and we continue to be inspired by all of you.
