FABSCRAP, founded by Executive Director Jessica Schreiber, provides convenient pickup of fabric scraps from fashion, design, and entertainment companies in NYC. FABSCRAP works with an engaged network of students, artists, crafters, local designers, industrial processors, and uses new technologies to reuse and recycle fabric to maximize its diversion from landfills.
Prior to launching FABSCRAP, Jessica worked for the New York City Department of Sanitation as a Senior Manager in the Bureau of Recycling and Sustainability. She helped launch and then managed NYC’s e-waste and clothing recycling contracts, including re-fashioNYC, a residential clothing reuse program which recycled over 6 million pounds of clothing, and NYC’s first ever curbside clothing collection pilot. She has an MA in Climate and Society from Columbia University.
