Goodwill is Green

In any given year, Americans generate over 250 million tons of waste that populates landfills. We have a number of green initiatives to reduce our community’s carbon footprint:

  • We reuse donated paper and plastic bags at checkout; help us reduce waste by bringing extra bags /boxes next time you shop.
  • 15% of our stores use solar energy for power.
  • Our headquarters in St. Paul’s Midway neighborhood is a repurposed bottling factory that has wheelchair-friendly flooring made from recycled materials.
  • We are largely a paperless operation, and lead recycling efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.
  • Many of our locations have electric car charging stations. See plug and shop locations below!
  • Every year, we handle over 100 million donated items and divert over 65 million pounds from landfills. Many of our locations have electric car charging stations and 15% of our stores use solar energy for power.
  • Our green efforts were recognized nationally in 2020 by Goodwill Industries International with a Sustainability Champion designation.
