Did you know Goodwill has been green Before green was EVEN a thing?
In any given year, Americans generate over 250 million 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 60 million pounds from landfills annually.
60 million pounds is equivalent to 132 Statues of Liberty, 48 Airbus A380 planes or 2,400 school buses!
Over 70% of our retail stores are Energy Star rated. 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. The 24 locations that offer car charging stations are listed below.
