    I love this, Audrey! I'm going to see how I can help.

    • Audrey Bellis

      That would be awesome Jelena! Maybe GOOD could host a bin for your building?

      • Jelena Woehr

        Either that or my apartment building perhaps? Or both? I'm looking into it! Thanks for sharing. I'll post pics if/when I get a bin :)

          Awesome! I'm going to hit up the neighbors in our building- there are so many clothing factories above us, I want to see if we can get the floors to compete with each other!

            Great idea, Audrey. I wonder how you could get some of those clothing factories to reimagine and upcycle their materials for maybe even bedding and other items. I just moved and I know I can donate some clothes- but if they can't be used, maybe they can be recycled into something else?

              Sorry Alessandra- I meant to reply to you and replied to myself below instead (facepalm)

              That's a great idea! We approached some once about that for Catholic Charities and the deal is that they are contracted by brands to produce the clothes so the fabric, run offs, extras, irregular items technically all belong to the brand. So its the brand's we have to go through. Now buying or getting fabric donated from the local wholesalers and getting a bunch of seamstresses together to donate their time is another thing that could happen. Like a knitting club but sewing?
