Did you know that Goodwill will even take clothes with stains and rips? I didn’t, at least until I went looking for a local Goodwill here. Any clothes they can’t sell get sent to a facility that recycles fabrics and resells them, meaning it’s a win for you, them, and the environment! And when you donate all the stuff you no longer have a use for, someone else gets to buy an item used – saving them some money and stopping a “new” product from being made from raw materials. Buying used clothing and goods is a great way to help the environment, and by you donating the stuff you don’t want you are helping to keep that cycle going. So even if you think what are looking to get rid of has no value, think again – it may to someone else. This week alone I have donated 67 books, 5 bags of clothes, assorted electronics, and some random household stuff. I am sure that a soon-to-be shopper at Goodwill will find some use for my unwanted items. So just Do One Thing – Donate, Don’t Trash. Even the broken things can sometimes find a new home!
