Going green with Uptown is Smart and Fashionable!
Consigning at Uptown will make you money and it’s good for the environment.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an estimated 14.3 million tons of textiles were generated in 2012, or 5.7 percent of total municipal solid waste (MSW) generation. An estimated 14.4 percent of textiles in clothing and footwear and 17.8 percent of items such as sheets and pillowcases was recovered for export or reprocessing in 2012.
Almost half of the 2.5 billion pounds of post consumer textile waste prevented from entering the solid waste stream is recycled as secondhand clothing, according to the Council for Textile recycling.
