where to recycle clothing in nyc

When editing your wardrobe, you inevitably have clothes that aren’t in good enough condition to donate (stained, damaged). Instead of throwing them out, you can recycle them.

Thanks to Grow NYC, Friday-Monday, there are a number of locations around Manhattan and Brooklyn where you can drop off clothing, shoes, hats, and belts. While they also accept bedding and linens, please donate them to a local vet’s office or animal shelter for reuse (call to see if your local one does).
If you’re not in NYC (and even if you are) you can bring any brand of worn out sneakers (no cleats, sneakers containing metal, flip flops, or dress shoes) to any Nike retailer where they recycle them into sport and playground surfaces, as well as numerous Nike apparel, footwear, and equipment products.
