Goodwill is the original recycler!
Did you know that it takes nearly 1,800 gallons of water to produce
just one pair of jeans?
When those jeans are donated to Goodwill they’re sold in Goodwill stores and the proceeds support employment services for people in the local community.
Goodwill shoppers and donors promote a greener community.
Goodwill-Suncoast collects nearly 60 million pounds of donations each year and 85% of those items are reused or recycled!
In the above photo, unsold textiles are baled for sale to recyclers,
rather than being trucked to community landfills.
