Wearable Collections At Your Local Greenmarket

Since January 2009, Wearable Collections and GrowNYC have partnered up bring more textile recycling options to New Yorkers. We are honored to have such an esteemed partner and be able to participate in the weekly markets that have had such a positive impact in supporting the local community. We are happy to be able to add one more component to our collections and provide our service to those who are unable to recycle clothing inside their buildings. The donation of these items helps support GrowNYC’s environmental and greening programs.

Textile collections at Greenmarkets is a partnership between two of GrowNYC’s programs, the Office of Recycling Outreach and Education (OROE) and Greenmarket Farmers’ Markets. OROE’s mission is to aid the Department of Sanitation in its efforts to meet Mayor Bloomberg’s aggressive recycling goals.

GrowNYC is a hands-on non-profit that has been improving New York City’s environment for over thirty years. GrowNYC’s dedicated staff green our neighborhoods, create the environmental leaders of the future, promote waste prevention and recycling, and run the largest farmers market program in the country. GrowNYC achieves its mission through the following projects and programs: Greenmarket farmers markets, Open Space Greening which provides assistance to community gardens and gardeners; Environmental Education in intermediate and high schools; the Office of Recycling Outreach and Education which promotes recycling and waste prevention; Learn It, Grow It, Eat It which promotes healthy eating for teens; Youthmarkets: youth operated urban farm stands; and the New Farmer Development Project which helps agriculturally experienced immigrants become self sufficient farmers.
