BJM kids About Us

SewGreen is a not-for-profit program of Sustainable Tompkins. Our independent reuse/resale program annually saves about 20 tons of unwanted materials from going to the landfill, and sales proceeds help support our community programs.



Our store, which is our main source of revenue, thrives on donated materials. Items you donate are used in classes, resold, or passed along to other community organizations. Monetary gifts are also very helpful! All donations are tax-deductible.
