Wearable Collections is an eco-friendly NYC clothing recycling company that aims to make the recycling of clothing as convenient as recycling a newspaper.

Clothing donated to Wearable Collections is sorted at its facility into several different grades: re-usable as secondhand clothing, wiping rags, and scrap to be shredded for low grade fiber products. The secondhand clothing is shipping to emerging markets globally, which they say gets to the final customer "cost effectively."

In 2012 alone, Wearable Collections collected and recycled over 2 million pounds of textiles. Wearable Collections is currently running 18 weekly pickup programs in NYC, and you can request a bin in your building on their website.
