DSNY Presents ReFashion Week In NYC

Every year, New Yorkers send approximately 200,000 tons of clothing, shoes, linens, and accessories to landfill. To raise awareness of this textile waste and provide fashionable solutions, The New York City Department of Sanitation’s donateNYC program presents ReFashion Week NYC, a first-of-its kind week of events taking place throughout NYC.

Between February 23 and March 1, 2019, donateNYC and members of the donateNYC Partnership program will hold clothing swaps, styling competitions, shopping events, and more. In the spirit of showing that thrift stores can produce runway-caliber looks while reducing waste, the week will culminate in the ReFashion Show on Friday, March 1.
