Goodwill is Green

Did you know Goodwill has been green Before green was EVEN a thing?


In any given year, Americans generate over 250 tons of waste that populates landfills. Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota has a number of green initiatives to reduce our community’s carbon footprint:

  • We reuse your paper and plastic bags at checkout. Help us continue to reduce waste by bringing us your extra bags the next time you shop.
  • Our unique “donate-shop-reuse-educate-employ” model diverts over 50M pounds from landfills annually.
  • 50 million pounds is equivalent to 110 Statues of Liberty, 40 Airbus A380 planes and could fill MOA's Nickelodeon Universe 13 times!
  • Over 60% of our retail stores are Energy Star Certified. That means they meet strict standards set by the EPA around using less energy and emitting fewer greenhouse gasses.
  • Many of our locations have electric car charging stations. Check out the 24 locations that offer car charging stations.
