Reuse Your Clothing – New York City

Every year Americans throw away two quadrillion pounds of used clothing. Heaps of wasted clothing, often still in great condition, languish in landfills. Consider selling or donating your old clothes instead of throwing them out by using some of New York City's local resources. Donating, purchasing and reusing second hand clothing will significantly reduce the severe toll placed on the environment through the production of new clothing.
