With the change in season comes the inevitable day--or entire weekend--dedicated to spring cleaning and transitioning ones wardrobe for warmer temps. Fortunately, for those of us residing in the Big Apple, Method (full disclosure: Co-Founder Adam Lowry is a guest contributor to TreeHugger) will help in the final stages of cleaning out our closets; the natural and non-toxic cleaning company has teamed up with Goodwill Industries to handle the laundering and donating--including transport--of gently worn clothing in a campaign, called "Wash smart. Give smart." After all, who doesn't find clothing from ages ago and wonder: When am I ever going to wear this? Click through for details:

Starting this Thursday, May 13-15, Method's mobile laundry room will take to the streets of New York City, washing new and worn clothing items before delivering them to a nearby Goodwill. Look for the truck at the three locations, below. Games, prizes, and special guests are also in store; plus, the first 200 people who donate clothing will receive a complimentary bottle of Method laundry detergent.
Thursday, May 13: Broadway between Houston and Prince, 10am - 6pm
Friday, May 14: Union Square, 10am - 6pm
Saturday, May 15: Herald Square; 35th Street between 6th Avenue and Broadway, 10am - 6pm
If this isn't a reason to transition my wardrobe--already!--I don't know what is.
