Life of a Donation

The Life of a Donation

Whether you’re a donor or a shopper, you may be curious about what the lifecycle of a donated item looks like. In this video, we follow a donation from the time it leaves a donor’s hand until it’s either sold or processed for recycling. That’s right — donating is recycling whether or not your donation is sold! We achieved 90% of our Zero Waste Goal by diverting 80 million pounds from landfills last year. Let’s keep going green this Earth Month and beyond! Find your nearest Goodwill location or schedule a donation pickup here.
