Planet Aid had chosen to extend its invitation to clothing and shoe retailers during Fashion Week (Sept 5-12) in New York City to help raise awareness about the need for greater recycling. Fashion Week is when the fashion industry convenes to introduce their new designs for the next season. The industry has been criticized for its propagation of a “fast fashion” culture, which tends to increase the quantity of clothing that is unwanted due to the trend toward ever rapidly changing styles.
Currently an average household throws away 200 pounds of used clothing and shoes per year. By recycling this clothing rather than simply throwing it away, Americans can help save valuable resources, minimize landfill disposal, and reduce emissions of greenhouse gasses.
Headquartered in Elkridge, MD, Planet Aid is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inform, mobilize and inspire individuals and communities to work together to bring about worldwide environmental and social progress.
