Be Earth-Friendly on Earth Day at Goodwill

Friday, April 23, 2010

If you haven’t thought about how you can reduce your impact on the planet, now is the perfect time. This also happens to be a time when many people begin spring cleaning. Rather than throw your stuff out, consider bringing items you no longer need to Goodwill, and you’ll be doing a great service to the environment.

While tackling those attics, basements and closets, think about the ways your stuff can be reused. For instance, you may not want that set of golf clubs or kitchen table anymore, but there’s probably someone in the community who would love to have it. Goodwill can find new homes for these items, making the organization a great place to bring clothing, books, furniture, toys, housewares and other items that still have lots of life left in them. What’s more, when you donate these items, you help Goodwill provide free job training and education programs to people in our community.

You can also be Earth-friendly by recycling items. Goodwill participates in a successful program called E-Cycle Washington. Just bring in your old televisions, computers, monitors and laptops to Goodwill’s Donation Centers, and they will be responsibly recycled, free of charge.

Goodwill is a community resource to help you reduce, reuse and recycle on Earth Day and every other day. There are two Goodwill Donation Centers in Shoreline - the store, and the donation drop-off.
