After an internship at Carolina Herrera, and launching his own zero-waste cocktail/evening wear collection, NYC-based designer Daniel Silverstein wanted to do more. He began collecting scraps from local factories and creating a flat textile from them. He then started making his own designs from this newly created yardage. He’s begun offering the service to other fashion houses in NYC, and brands like Eileen Fisher are sending him scraps and buying his ‘ReRoll. So far this year, Daniel estimates that his company, Zero Waste Daniel, has diverted roughly 2,000 pounds—literally a ton—of material from landfill.
