Simple, genius, and totally necessary, Wearable Collections is one of those things that make you say,
“I could have thought of that!”
Adam Baruchowitz not only thought of it, he’s doing it. His eco-friendly organization, WEARABLE COLLECTIONS, provides bins to residential buildings for the sole purpose of recycling clothes. Wearable Collections provides a solution to a problem that we no longer can ignore: 386 million pounds of textiles enter the NYC waste stream annually, representing close to 6% of total waste. Wearable Collections provides a no cost, turn-key solution to recycling clothing within residential buildings in NYC. They handle all the logistics from placement of bins and promotion within the buildings to scheduling weekly pick-ups.
Here’s the really neat part: through Wearable Collection’s established network, the company distributes the discarded clothing around the world to people who need it, enabling them to raise money for charitable organizations.They help nonprofits raise money through clothing drives, promoting the organization, strengthening the community and raising much needed funds.
Wearable Collections not only reminds us the importance of the environment, but also the power of the community.
