FBR regularly donates to 9 local charities, one of which - Wearable Collections - has provided materials for local artist Derick Melander’s incredible art installations. In 2009, community volunteers helped the artist to create “Into The Fold”, a monumental sculpture from 3,615 pounds of second hand clothing, at Brooklyn’s Borough Hall. Why 3,615 pounds? That’s the amount of textile waste created by New Yorkers every 5 minutes. Your work is inspiring Derick, we love it! Check out a photo of another one of Derick’s pieces, “Silence”…

A weekly post presenting a nod of our appreciation in the direction of a featured partner, charity or donation and a sneak peek at the process of how we collectively use our powers for good in turning would-be waste into treasure.
We’ve received a HUGE donation of shoes (thanks!) and now we’re turning to our friends at Wearable Collections who know best what to do next. Some of the volunteers here loved all the high heels and kicks but alas, it’s best not to get attached.
Here at Film Biz Recycling, we’re all about creating socially responsible and sustainable solutions for media industry waste that would otherwise go the way of the landfill. It’s a proud feeling to be the home for props, fostering their beauty and returning them to the hands of creative people.
In this case, as much as we love to see all of these beautiful shoes in our Prop Shop, it’s much better to see them off with one of our great partners and charities, like Wearable Collections!
We can’t wait to fill this white van with shoes!
