"Hey, how are you?"

“嘿,你好吗?”

"Dropping off some stuff for 101 productions."

“给101制作公司送点东西。”

New York City theaters have an unusual performance underway.

纽约市的剧院正在上演一场不同寻常的演出。

Producers, actors and costume designers from downtown theaters are coming together to drop off used decorations and costumes for a cause.

来自市中心剧院的制作人、演员和服装设计师齐聚起来,为一项事业送去旧装饰品和服装。

"Everybody brings in all of the clothes that they're not using anymore.

“每个人都带来了自己所有用不着的衣服。

A lot of their partners' clothes, kids’ clothes. And we all trade and switch in people and end up with new items and then everything else gets donated."

很多他们伴侣的衣服,孩子的衣服。我们都会在人们之间贸易和交换,最后都有新的东西,然后其他的东西都会被捐赠出去。”

This card comes straight from the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Well, from the backstage.

“在发生了这多事情的情况下,在气候变化的影响下,作为一个社区,我们必须站在最前列,确保物品捐赠和回收,这一点非常重要。”

In New York, recycling and waste sorting has become a priority as a city that annually creates some 14 million tons of waste learns how to clean up.

在纽约,垃圾回收和垃圾分类已成为优先事项,因为这个城市每年产生约1400万吨垃圾,它知道如何清理垃圾。

"This is just a life changer. It’s that your kitchen never knows that because there’s nothing decomposing in your trash bin."

“这只是改变了生活。你的厨房永远不会知道这一点,因为你的垃圾桶里没有腐烂的东西。”

Some New Yorkers are even taking classes about zero waste organized by the city authorities.

The goal is to teach people how to move from a disposable lifestyle to a recycling lifestyle.

To help, they also hired ecologists and psychologists.

为了提供帮助,他们还聘请了生态学家和心理学家。

"Start with small things, changing over your water bottles to reusable, then do maybe your coffee cup, then work on, weaning yourself up paper towels.

“从小事做起,把你的水瓶换成可重复使用的,然后再换你的咖啡杯,然后继续工作,戒掉纸巾。

There’s different ways, you know, that maybe you want to start buying local food."

"Thank you very much. I’m from Australia and I’ve had the coat for too long. It’s summer over there. We’re already swimming."

“非常感谢。我来自澳大利亚,这件外套穿得太久了。那边是夏天。我们已经在游泳了。”

Everyone is getting into the act, even the Time Square star, The Naked Cowboy, is supportive.

每个人都在参与这项活动,甚至时代广场的明星,裸体牛仔,都在支持。

Although unlike some of the tourists, he doesn’t really have much clothing to recycle.

虽然不像一些游客,他并没有多少衣服可以回收。
