Net Impact on Carbon

Hi All!

I'm working on a project for Anvil Knitwear,a leading sustainable apparel brand, for the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. If you click the link below, click Join this Team, then Join the Fashion Swap Challenge. I'd love to hear your feedback!

Manufacturing and delivering clothes requires energy and generates climate-changing CO2. Over 20 billion pounds of clothing ends up in our landfills every year. An estimated 1 in 10 clothing items gets bought, never worn, and simply thrown away. Instead, throw a clothing swap party!

  1. Rita's vision of a Campus Wide Clothing Swap is becoming a reality. The University Student Senate, The New School Sustainability Advisory Committee, ReNew School, Sustainable Design Review, Residence Life, Office of Student Development and Activities, and many others really dig this idea and are eager to help it along. University stakeholders, please let us know if you'd like to get involved!
