Goodwill is Green!

Goodwill is GreenBeing Green

When you shop or donate items to Goodwill you are greeted by staff in shirts that say "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" that share our message of environmental sustainability. The idea of being green has always been an underlying philosophy of our business and extends throughout our entire organization.

Did you know that Goodwill is one of the greenest organizations on the planet? You may not realize it, but when you donate or shop at Goodwill, you set in motion a whole series of earth friendly activities. Every item you donate or purchase at a Goodwill store is one less item thrown away. It's instant recycling. The fact is, Goodwill was green before it became the trend that it is today, and we are proud of our commitment to preserving the environment.

Goodwill Facts

Did you know that Goodwill collected over 3.5 billion pounds of donations in 2015?

Plus, all of your donated items have additional value to Goodwill because the proceeds are used to support our mission of putting disabled or disadvantaged people to work.

So why not help people in your community, as well as the environment and shop and donate at Goodwill!

Goodwill E-cycle
Introducing Goodwill E-cycle!

Electronic waste is a growing issue for many companies. With the rapid pace of technology, the life cycle of these electronic components is getting shorter and shorter, creating more e-waste than ever before.

Brand protection is one of the biggest concerns organizations have when they partner with companies to dispose of e-waste. Businesses are also concerned about environment stewardship and making sure that their e-cycling partners support those efforts.

That's where Goodwill E-cycle can help. Understanding these needs, we have a dedicated team that is here to help you formulate a responsible disposal plan for current and future e-waste. Goodwill has been recycling and repurposing since our inception over 100 years ago.
