As deploying sustainability methods continues to gain traction throughout the fashion industry, brands and retailers are adopting greener practices to improve organization-wide values and procedures. And companies such as FabScrap, a textile reuse and recycling resource, aim to mitigate the issue of waste by streamlining material recycling processes for New York City-based businesses.
FabScrap founder Jessica Schreiber worked for the New York City Department of Sanitation as a senior manager in the Bureau of Recycling and Sustainability. In that role, she helped launch and manage New York City’s e-waste and clothing recycling contacts, including the city’s first curbside clothing collection pilot and Re-fashioNYC, a residential clothing reuse program, which recycled more than 6 million pounds of clothing. Schreiber’s experiences led her to ponder the ongoing effects of commercial waste and gave rise to the development of FabScrap.
