Uplift & Upcycle Fashion Project

The "Uplift and Upcycle Fashion Project"  serves a dual purpose. It introduces young adults to the art of fashion with the intention of building their confidence and self esteem. It also demonstrates approachable ways to reuse and recycle clothing that appeals to todays fashion trends.

 Co-Lab Challenge

In 2017, the Mayor’s Office, the Department of Sanitation of New York (DSNY), and NYCHA launched the NYCx Co-Lab Challenge: Zero Waste in Shared Space to seek solutions that would improve recycling capture rates at NYCHA, increase resident engagement, mitigate litter, reduce the amount of time that NYCHA employees spend dealing with waste and involve the community in a meaningful way.
