    When I inquired what would be done with the leftover clothes, I was told that they would be donated to local shelters, not sold. I donated a fair amount of clothing to this clothing drive with that in mind. If I were going to sell my clothes, I could have done that myself and kept the money. I’m disappointed to see that this is happening and especially disappointed that EcoReps didn’t publish any information on Morning Mail regarding what will be done with the money. I strongly support your work and was sorry to see this awkward change in plans after so many people already donated.

    Hi Elena,

    I apologize for any confusion there may have been with how we are treating leftover clothes. The primary goal of the clothing swap is to recycle clothing that is not being worn and get it into the hands of people who want it. We are allowing people who did not donate, or are interested in more items than the number they donated to make a $1 donation per item. As this was a last minute decision, it was not included in the Morning Mail, but it was posted on the Facebook event page. The money we raise will be donated and any leftover clothes will be given to the Rhode Island Donation Exchange.

    Thank you for your feedback,
    Matt Breuer
