Each year the average New Yorker throws nearly 50 pounds of textiles such as old clothing, towels and shoes in the household trash. That adds up to almost 360 million pounds each year citywide. Help GROWNYC this year again by donating clean  and dry clothing, paired shoes, bedding, linens, hats, handbags, belts, fabric scraps 36″ x 36″ or larger and other textiles.  There are two events in the Bronx this year:


Friday, October 28, 9am-2pm
Parkchester Greenmarket
Westchester Ave & White Plains Rd

Wednesday, November 2, 9am-3pm
New York Botanical Gardens Greenmarket
Mosholu Gate on Southern Blvd b/t Mosholu Pkwy & Bedford Pk Blvd
