New York City Tackles Wasteful Fashion With #WearNext Campaign

This spring, New York City is tackling waste created by the fashion industry with its #WearNext campaign. Between March 4 and June 9, over 1,100 locations in NYC are accepting clothing, textiles, shoes and accessories for reuse and recycling.

To help people get rid of their clothing more easily, the NYC Department of Sanitation created an online map of the sites where New Yorkers can take unwanted clothing. Participating residents are encouraged to share their stories on social media using the #WearNext hashtag.

 

 

The goal of the #WearNext campaign is to reduce how many clothes New Yorkers toss, and motivate them to repair, donate, swap or resell their clothes instead. New York City alone dumps roughly 200 million pounds of clothing into landfills each year. That’s more than the weight of 440 Statues of Liberty.

Globally, only one percent of old clothing is used to make new clothing. An estimated $500 billion dollars worth of clothing is lost to landfills or incineration every year, even though it is barely worn. Additionally, washing synthetic clothing releases more than half a million tons of plastic microfibers into the ocean every year. In other words, the equivalent of more than 50 billion plastic bottles enters our water supply and food chain, just from washing our clothes.

We can all help the fashion industry move towards a more sustainable model. How? Avoid fast fashion and find ways to repair, donate, swap or resell your clothes. You can also consider buying clothing secondhand instead of new. Check out our options for mail-in donations as well as our local donation locations.


LA CIUDAD DE NUEVA YORK ABORDA LA MODA DERROCHADORA CON LA CAMPAÑA #WEARNEXT

Esta primavera, la ciudad de Nueva York esta luchando contra el gasto que causa la industia de moda con su campaña #WearNext. Entre el 4 de Marzo y 9 de Junio, mas de 1,100 localizaciones en Nueva York estan aceptando ropa, textiles, zapatos y acesorios para reusar y reciclar.

Para ayudar a la gente para que se deseaga de la ropa que ya no usan mas rapido , el departamento de saneamiento de Nueva York creo un mapa en linea de las areas donde los residentes de Nueva York pueden llevar su ropa que ya no quieren. Los residentes que participan son animados a subir sus historias en las redes sociales usando la hashtag #WearNext.

La meta de la campaña #WearNext es reducir la cantidad de ropa que las personas de Nueva York tiran a la basura, y motivarlos a reparar,donar, intercambiar o revender su ropa mejor. La ciudad de Nueva York sola tira alrededor de 200 millones de libras a nuestros vertederos cada año. Eso es mas que el peso de 440 Estatuas de la Libertad.

Mundialmente, solo un porciento de la ropa vieja es usada para crear ropa nueva. Un estimado de $500 mil millones de ropa es tirado a nuestos vertederos o incineracion cada año, auque la ropa apenas este usada. Adicionalmente, lavando ropa sintetica lanza mas de medio millon de toneladas de micofibras de plastico cada año. En otras palabras, el equivalente de mas de 50 mil millones de botellas de plastico entra nuestra suministro de agua y nuestra cadena alimenticia, solo lavando la ropa.

Todos podemos ayudar a la insudtria de la moda a avanzar hacia un modelo mas sostenible. Como? Evitando moda rapida y buscando formas de a reparar, donar, intercambiar o revender su ropa. Tambien puede considerar comprar ropa de segunda mano en lugar de nueva. Checa nuestras opciones para mandar su ropa en correo al igual que checar su locazion local para hacer donaciones directas.

 

How to Keep Your Graduation Gown Out of the Landfill

At the end of every spring is graduation time. Schools all over the country will send their fledglings out into the world or onto their next degree. Students are typically required to purchase their own cap and gown, even though chances are they’ll be worn just once before getting tossed.

This year alone, U.S. high schools expect 3.6 million students to graduate. That’s a lot of caps and gowns to make room for in our landfills.

So how can you avoid buying a graduation gown that will end up in the trash? Here are some tips:

  • Ask if your school has a cap and gown rental program. If you can rent your graduation attire, you won’t have to find a way to get rid of it after the ceremony!
  • If you’ve already bought a new cap and gown, see if you can donate them to your school after graduation. If your school doesn’t have a rental program, encourage them to start one. It’s a great way to avoid unnecessary waste, as well as a way to relieve students from the financial responsibility.
  • Give your cap and gown to a younger friend or sibling, or hang onto it until the following spring, when people will be looking, and post it on a local sales app such as Craigslist, Freecycle, Letgo or OfferUp. You could also try taking it to a local thrift store.
  • Try giving your graduation outfit to a daycare or preschool where kids could use it for playing dress-up, or a theater or drama club that could add it to their costume collection.

    COMO MANTENER TU VESTIMENTA DE GRADUACION FUERA DE NUESTROS VERTEDEROS

    Al final de cada primavera es el tiempo de las graduaciones. Escuelas alrededor de el pais envian a sus polluelos al mundo o a su proximo grado. Tipicamente los estudiantes son requeridos a que compren su vestimenta de graduacion , aunque es probable que solo la usen una vez antes de tirarla a la basura.

    Solo este año, las escuelas de los Estados Unidos esperan alrededor de 3.6 millones de estudiantes para graduarse. Eso es demaciado espacio que nuestros vertederos tienen que hacer para toda las vestimentas de graduacion que seran tiradas.

    Entonces como puedes evitar comprar la vestimente de graduacion que al final solo terminara en la basura? Aqui hay algunas propuestas:

    1.Pregunta si tu escuela tiene un programa para rentar la vestimenta. Si puedes rentar tu vestimenta de graducion, entonces despues no tendras que tirarlo despues de la ceremonia de graduacion!

    2.Si ya compraste la vestimenta de graduacion, averigua si lo puedes donar a la escuela despues de tu graduacion. Si tu escuela no tiene un programa para donar la vestimenta de graduacion trata de animarlos a creear uno. Es una forma genial para evitar residuos que no son necesarios, de la misma manera libra a los estudiantes de la responsabilidad financiera.

    3.Dar tu vestimenta a un amigo o hermano mas joven, o aguardalo hasta la primavera siguiente, cuando la gente este en busca de vestimenta para la graduacion, tambien lo puedes subir a paginas locales como Craglist, Freecycle, Letgo o Offerup. Usted tambien puede intenar llevarlo a una tienda de segunda mano.

    1. Puede usted intentar llevarlo a una escuela de preescolar o guarderia donde los niños puden usarlo para jugar a vestirse de estudiantes graduantes, o a un treatro o club de drama donde pudieran agregarlo a su colecion de disfrazes.



10 Surprising Things You Can’t Flush Down the Toilet

We all know what the toilet and its plumbing were designed for, but a lot of us can’t help it — sometimes other things seem like they can be flushed down the drain, too.

However, there can be a lot of unwanted consequences from flushing things down the drain that don’t belong. (Hint: most things don’t!)

There’s an environmental hazard of adding foreign substances to our water supply. Whether they’re chemicals or plastic, water treatment plants aren’t equipped to filter out all of these substances, so they build up in our drinking water over time.

Skip the mess — and contaminating our drinking water — by keeping these common offenders out of the drain, whether it’s your toilet, a shower or a sink. Click on each one to learn the best way to dispose of it.

The Most Commonly Littered Item? Cigarette Butts — And They’re Plastic

More cigarettes are littered than plastic bags, straws, bottles, wrappers or takeout packaging. They’re the most common type of litter on the planet. Why? Because many people find it socially acceptable to throw cigarette butts on the ground.

The Ocean Conservancy has been facilitating beach clean-ups since 1986. In the past 30+ years, they have collected over 60 million cigarette filters, making them the most common piece of ocean litter. In 2017 alone, cleanup volunteers collected 2.4 million butts.

It’s estimated that 5.6 trillion cigarettes are consumed each year, and as many as two-thirds of the filters are littered.

No matter how you want to count it, that’s a pretty big problem. And what makes it even worse is that they’re made from plastic. For a long time, people have believed that cigarette filters are made of paper and that they biodegrade naturally, but that isn’t true.

According to NBC News, 90% of cigarettes contain a plastic-based filter. Plastic pollution is dangerous because of how it breaks down — or rather, how it doesn’t break down. Plastic doesn’t biodegrade, it photodegrades. So it breaks down into smaller pieces with the help of heat and sunlight, but it never stops existing as plastic. Unlike other organic materials that can be eaten and digested and recomposed, plastic just stays plastic.

When cigarette filters break down and are eaten by wildlife, the plastic fibers accumulate in the bodies of the animals and work their way up the food chain. Before the filters begin breaking down, they release all the chemicals they absorbed from the cigarette smoke, including nicotine, arsenic and lead.

Many of these cigarette filters end up in the ocean. Some are tossed directly by beachgoers. Others are washed from sidewalks and street corners into gutters, storm drains, local waterways, and they make their way into the ocean from there.

If you smoke, be careful to dispose of your butts in ashtrays and trash cans, so that they don’t end up polluting our environment and endangering wildlife.


LOS ARTICULO MAS COMMUNMENTE TIRADO? LAS COLILLAS DE CIGARILLO- Y SON DE PLASTICO

Mas cigarros son tirados que las bolsas de platico, popotes, botellas, envoltarios o embalaje para llevar. Ellos son la camada mas commune en nuestro planeta. Por que? Porque muchas personas lo encuentran socialmente aceptable tirar sus colillas de cigarillo al piso.

El Ocean Conservancy ha facilitado la limpieza de playa desde el 1986. En los 30+ años pasados, an colectado mas de 60 millones de filtros de cigarillos, haciendolos la camada mas comun en nuestros oceanos. Solo en el 2017, voluntarios de limpieza colectaron 2.4 millones de colillas.

Es estimado que 5.6 trillon de cigaros son consumidos cada año, y hasta dos tercios de los filtros son tirados.

Sin importer como lo quieras contar, este es un problema muy grande. Y lo que lo hace mucho peor es que estan echos de platico. Por mucho tiempo , la gente ha pensado que los filtros de cigarillos eran echos de papel y que biodegradan naturalmente, pero es no es cierto.

De acuerdo a las noticias de NBC, 90% de los cigarros contien un filtro basado en platico. La contaminacion de plastico es peligrosa en la forma en la cual se deshace. El plastico no se biodegrada, se fotodegrada. Asi que se deshace en piezas mas pequeñas con la ayuda de la calor y la luz, pero nunca deja de exisitir como plastico. A diferencia de otros materiales comer, digerir, y recomponer, el plastico solo permanence plastico.

Cuando los filtros de cigarros se deshacen y son comidos por la vida salvaje, las fibras de plastico se acumulan en nuestros cuerpos y se abren paso a la cadena alimenticia. Antes de que el filtro se empieze a deshacer, empiezas ha lanzar todos los quimicos que absorbieron de el humo de el cigarro, incluyendo la nicotina, arsenic y el plomo.

Muchos de estos filtros de cigarillos terminan en el oceano. Algunos son arrojados directamente por bañistas. Otros son arrastrados desde los acercas y esquinas de las calles hasta las caneletas, los desagues pluvilales, las vias fluviales locales, y desde ahi se dirigen hacia el oceano.

Si fumas, ten cuidado con disponer tus colillas de cigarros en los basureros y ceniseros, para que no terminen contaminando nuestro ambiente y poniendo en peligro nuestra vida salvaje.

Green Your Grocery Trip With Reusable Produce Bags

Springtime is here, and the markets are about to become jam-packed with fresh fruits and veggies. Now is the perfect time to stock up on reusable produce bags!

We all know it’s better to use reusable grocery bags instead of plastic ones, but what about plastic produce bags? Reusable produce bags are a simple and affordable way to avoid single-use plastic. They’re easy to find online, and they can also be found at certain grocery stores and home goods stores. Bags made from cotton or other natural fibers are best. Simply toss them in the wash with other linens when they get dirty.

Pro tip: Once you have reusable produce bags, stash a few of them inside one of your reusable shopping bags, and keep them in your car at all times so that you don’t forget to bring them to the store!

If you’re still using plastic produce bags, you can recycle these with plastic bags. They need to be empty and dry, so give them a good shake to get any last crumbs out. If they need to be rinsed, you can prop them in your dish rack to dry. (Paper towel holders work really well, too!)


MANTENGA SUS VIAJES DE COMESTIBLES VERDES CON BOLSAS DE PRODUCTO REUTILIZABLES

El tiempo de verano esta aqui, y los mercados estaran llenos de fruitas y verduras frescas. Ahora es el tiempo perfecto para surtirse en las bolsas de productos reutilizables.

Todos sabemos que es mejor usar bolsas reutilizables en lugar de bolsas de plastico, pero que acerca de las bolsas de plastico de producto? Bolsas de product reutilizables son simples y asequible para evitar plastico de un solo uso. Son faciles de encontrar en linea, tambien pueden ser encontradas en ciertas tiendas de comestibles o tiendas de articulos para el hogar. Bolsas echas de algodon o de otras fibras naturales son las mejores. Simplemente es de meterlas a lavar con otra ropa de cama cuando se ensucien.

Consejo Pro: En cuanto tenga bolsas reutilizables, aguarde varias dentro de una bolsa reutilizable grande y aguardelas en su carro todo el tiempo para que no se le olvide llevarselas a la tienda.

Si atodavia esta usando bolsas de producto plastico, puede reciclar estas con bolsas de plastico. Necesitan estar vacias y secas, asi que sacudalas bien para poder quitarle hasta las ultimas migajas. Si necesitan ser lavadas, las puede meter a su lava platos. (Los toalleros de papel tambien funcionan muy bien.)

Are You ‘Tidying Up With Marie Kondo’? Here’s How to Do It the Green Way

Since the Marie Kondo Netflix special ‘Tidying Up With Marie Kondo’ was released on January 1, tidying up has become a nationwide craze. Although the Japanese decluttering expert has been on and off the New York Times bestseller list since her first U.S. book was published in 2014, her Instagram following has increased by nearly 2 million since her Netflix debut. In the same timeframe, resale stores around the country are claiming that their donation piles have reached record levels. Clearly, her ideas are catching on.

If you are one of many Americans with too much “stuff,” it’s not a bad idea to downsize. However, most “stuff” takes a long time to break down once it’s in the landfill, and when it comes to plastic, it might never break down. If you decide to use the KonMari method to declutter, follow these tips to make sure as little ends up in the landfill as possible.

1. Don’t toss everything into a garbage bag. Not everything you’re getting rid of is trash. If someone would still pay money for it, sell it. If someone would still use it, donate it. If the item needs fixing, repair it. And if the material is recyclable, recycle it! Only toss what truly cannot be reused or recycled.

2. Donate only what you would give to a friend. Donating is a great way to extend the life of your belongings! Find a list of our local donation locations here. However, most resale organizations — charity or not — end up tossing the items they can’t sell. So don’t donate belongings you wouldn’t feel comfortable giving to one of your friends. If you have items that you think someone would use, but no one would pay money for them (such as partially used cleaning products), try giving them away for free on Craigslist or Freecycle. Otherwise, find a way to recycle them instead.

3. Repair items that need it, or give them to someone who will. Sure, repairing something is a pain, whether it’s your toilet or a boot with a broken zipper. On the flip side, repairing something extends its life and reduces how much you need to buy. If you have something that you can’t fix, try giving it away or selling it at a reduced price. Local sales apps are great for this, including OfferUp, Letgo, Craigslist, Freecycle and Facebook Marketplace. You can advertise that your item needs some TLC, and that way, someone who has the time and skills to repair it can find it.

4. Recycle or upcycle items that can’t be used again. If you no longer have a use for something, and you don’t think your friends would use it either, find out if you can recycle it. For example, textiles can’t be recycled curbside, but you can recycle them in other ways. Clothing companies ThredUp and For Days will both recycle your old clothes, and For Days will even give you up to $50 in store credit. If you’re feeling crafty, you could take all the T-shirts in your closet that don’t bring you joy and turn them into T-shirt yarn for crafting. Find more alternative recycling programs and reuse ideas by searching our Recycling Guide.

5. Buy less stuff! You’ll never need to Marie Kondo your home if you refuse to buy stuff you don’t need in the first place. One of the great lessons Kondo teaches is appreciation for our belongings. According to her philosophy, we should treat them well and thank them for their service every day. What’s not very appreciative? Sending a giant pile of garbage bags to the dump!

6. Buy secondhand. The recent surge in donations to secondhand stores has people asking: Will buying secondhand become as popular as donating? Or is the secondhand shop simply a short layover on the trip to the landfill? You can help by buying secondhand yourself! Not only will you be discouraging overproduction of new materials, you’ll be able to afford items of higher quality than you can afford to buy new. In other words, you can spend less cash on nicer things that will last longer.

Go ahead and Marie Kondo your home this spring! Just remember to donate carefully, recycle more, and buy less stuff in the future.

The Beginning of the End of Disposable Packaging?

What if disposable packaging became a thing of the past? That’s exactly what the company TerraCycle is trying to achieve with their new program called Loop.

Some of the world’s biggest companies, including Unilever, P&G and Häagen-Dazs, have signed on to test a waste-free model of packaging where the consumer never owns the packaging a product comes in — instead, the company does. So when you’re done with your shampoo or ice cream container, it goes straight back to the manufacturer to be refilled and sold again. It’s basically the old milkman model revived for the 21st century.

TerraCycle has worked with participating companies to design packages that can survive at least 100 refills, and look good on your shelf while doing it. These packages can either be delivered to — and picked up from — your doorstep, or sold in regular stores, where you can also drop off your empties.

This program is only available in New York City and Paris right now, but you can join the waitlist to request Loop in your area.


EL PRINCIPIO DE EL FIN DE EMBALAJE DESECHABLE?

Que tal si el embalaje desechable se vuelve cosa de el pasado? Eso es exacatamente lo que la compania de Terracycle esta tratando de lograr con su Nuevo programa que se llama Loop.

Algunas de las compañias mas grandes de el mundo, incluyendo Unilever, P&G and Häagen-Dazs, han firmado probar unmodelo de empaque sin desperdicios en el que el consumidor nunca es dueño del empaque en el que viene el product, sino la empresa es el dueño de el empaque. Entonces cuando usted termine con su shampoo o su empaque de helado, se regresa directamente al fabricante para que se rellene y se vuelva a vender. Es basicamente el viejo modelo de el recipient de leche que se vivio en el Siglo 21.

TerraCycle ha trabajado con compañias participantes para diseñar un empaque que dure un minimo de 100 reusos, y al mismo tiempo que se mire bien en su estante. Estos empaques pueden ser entregados y recojidos en su puerta, o pueden ser vendidos en tiendas regulares, donde tambien pueda dejar sus enpaques vacios.

Este programa solo esta disponible en la ciudad de Nueva York y Paris ahorita, pero usted puede unirse a una lista de espera para pedir un Loop en su area local

The Biggest Garbage Dump on Earth Is in the Ocean
