Every year, NYC residents throw out 200,000 TONS of clothing and textiles. If more than 10% of an NYC company's commercial waste are textiles, they must be recycled.  After heading the clothing recycle unit in the NYC Sanitation Department, Jessica Schreiber decided to improve the situation by founding FABSCRAP. This social enterprise significantly increases the repurposing of discarded fabric by taking care of transport and storage, and converting the materials into new clothing, blankets, and filler. 

As part of Impact Capital Forum's NYC Social Enterprise Spotlight series, we are co-hosting a wine & cheese happening at FABSCRAP's new retail store. It's an opportunity to hear Jessica's and FABSCRAP's story, see the merchandise in their new store, learn more about the textile business in NYC, and network with others interested in social enterprise.

Attendees should register in advance on ICF’s website. Impact Capital Forum members attend at no cost;  non-members pay $20.
