May 2023 - recycling totals
Thanks to the incredible support of our donors, we have saved a remarkable 6,469 lbs of fabric and sewing-related supplies from ending up in landfills in May 2023.
We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the film industry, theatre groups, manufacturers, wholesalers, and individuals who have played a crucial role in this achievement. Their commitment to sustainability and belief in our mission has allowed us to make a significant impact on reducing waste in the textile industry.
The collaboration between Our Social Fabric and our diverse group of donors highlights the importance of collective action. By coming together, we have not only prevented valuable resources from being wasted but also demonstrated how different sectors can work in unison to address environmental challenges.
At Our Social Fabric, we firmly believe that sewing should be accessible to everyone. By rescuing fabric and sewing supplies and offering them at lower costs, we are making sewing more affordable and reducing financial barriers. This not only allows more people to engage in creative endeavors but also promotes sustainable consumption by diverting materials from landfills.
We are proud to be part of a community that values environmental responsibility and believes in the transformative potential of repurposed materials. With continued support from our donors, we will strive to make sewing more accessible and continue our efforts to build a more sustainable world, one stitch at a time.
