World Wear Project first became connected, in 2011, with the Plano Environmental Education & Community Outreach office through events such as Texas Recycles Day, which then led to participation in the Great American Cleanup, and One Stop Drop events. This subsequently led to World Wear Project participating in numerous events sponsored or supported by the Environmental Education office such as addressing school PTA environmental chairs, Learn 2 Live Green volunteers, participaing in the Live Green in Plano Eco Teen Spring Break Experience 2012, and exhibiting at the spring 2014 Learn 2 Live Green event at The Shops of Legacy. Since then our relationship with the Plano community has grown exponentially.
In July of 2012, we placed a Live Green in Plano branded shoes and clothing collection bin at the City of Plano facility on W. Plano Parkway. Through our work with the City of Plano we've collected almost 24,000 lbs. of shoes, clothing and other items.
