Fairco-Greentree (FGR) is an environmentally-friendly, for-profit enterprise that works to reduce textile waste in an expanding industry. For over 30 years our innovative approach has reached consumers, schools and businesses across Westchester and Fairfield counties. We offer a growing range of solutions to support your specific organization’s needs. By recycling clothing, shoes, accessories, bedding and towels, FGR is the sustainable salvage company providing easy, no cost, environmentally friendly and financially smart collection services. Our programs help to conserve our natural resources, reduce greenhouse emissions/air pollution, reduce water pollution and landfill waste. Your donated items become affordable options for those in need.
FGR is part of the growing textile collection industry across the US. By collecting and exporting clothes, shoes, bedding, etc. to struggling areas in the US and abroad, this industry can generate revenue, create jobs, benefit the environment and help to improve the lives of those in lower income areas in America and around the world. Many families depend on used clothing. Buying used clothes is not just an eco-friendly choice and a smart decision, but may also be the only choice for some families. Collection and resale keeps unwanted textile products out of our landfills where it can be reused by others.
FGR works with businesses, schools, places of worship and others in our community to collect unwanted clothing, shoes, accessories, bedding, towels, etc. We then resell the discarded items to recyclers of textiles in our area. These companies sort the items and then export them to small towns along the Texas/Mexico border and into Central America. The used items are welcomed by those shopping in flea markets and lower income resale stores.
We are proud to be a for-profit organization, which invests a significant portion of its resources to benefit the environment, provide jobs in our community and to reallocate unwanted textiles to those in need.
Let us work with you to customize a donation program for your organization.
