On 24 Sept 2009, a monumental sculpture from 3,615 pounds of second hand clothing was created by artist Derick Melander and many helping hands (including me!). The resulting piece was a 5 x 7 foot cube, carefully folded, stacked and arranged by color.

Why 3,615 pounds? That's the amount of textile waste created by New Yorkers every 5 minutes.

This event was hosted by the Council on Environment of New York City, was a part of the 5th Annual Green Brooklyn...Green City Fair and Symposium.
