Moving And Recycling: Two South Brooklyn Entrepreneurs Form Partnership To Reduce Waste

Recently, two South Brooklyn entrepreneurs have come up with a simple idea to reduce waste as well as making moving a lot easier.

Adam Baruchowitz of Wearable Collections Clothing Recycling on West 9th Street between Court and Smith Streets, and Mark Ehrhardt of Movers Not Shakers in Red Hook formed a partnership to launch a new collection program that allows people who are moving to leave behind their unwanted clothing.

From Wearable Collections web site:
Together we hope to ease the burden of moving while adding a Eco-friendly element. No more rushing to the nearest thrift store, hauling 10 bags of unwanted clothing when you have 100 other things on your list to accomplish before the move. Simply put those bags aside as recyclable and we will handle the rest. Your clothes, textiles and shoes will be placed in a re-usable plastic bin and delivered to our facility in Movers Not Shakers’ biodiesel vehicles. Not only did your move just get easier, it also got a whole lot greener.

Take a look at the video above which was made by Blue Barn Pictures of Dumbo for Baruchowitz and Ehrhardt.
