Yes, “Green” has been a trend, and I applaud anyone who has decided to go green because it’s trendy, cool, hip, what-have-you. I also applaud companies and people who have been green – Goodwill is one of them. Goodwill has been “green” since the conception, and has also been saving people green as well. Find your local Goodwill.

This is from their site:

Goodwill is one of the world’s largest recyclers. Our recycling process is unique:

  • Goodwill accepts donations of clothing, household items, and furniture, keeping these items from going to our landfills.
  • The donated articles are then sold in Goodwill stores, giving new life to the donations and giving someone else the opportunity to get the most out of the recycled items. Additionally, we recycle approximately 18 million pounds of unusable donated items, and transfer these funds directly to programs and services for people who need them.
  • Goodwill uses the money earned from the sale of the donations to pay for vocational programs and services for persons with disabilities and disadvantaging conditions in our own neighborhoods.

With a helping hand from Goodwill, special people are finding good jobs right here in Central Florida, becoming self-sufficient taxpayers who contribute to our community’s economy. Although the way we work is simple, it touches the lives of others who might not otherwise have the chance to change their lives.

So, think GREEN! Bring your unwanted items to Goodwill – it’s a great way to recycle and help your environment, and it changes lives, too!
