Donate, Shop & Be Green: Celebrate Earth Day with Goodwill

Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee is offering everyone the opportunity to save money while helping preserve the environment on Earth Day — Saturday, April 22 from 8a-8p.

Goodwill will hold a storewide half-off sale on Earth Day at all of its 34 retail stores. All merchandise, including clothing, linens, toys, books, kitchen wares, decor and other home goods, will be sold for 50 percent off.

Goodwill is a nonprofit, social enterprise that sells donated goods in its stores to change lives through education, training and employment across 48 Tennessee counties. It is also one of the state’s greenest organizations.

Last year, Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee processed more than 40 million donated items for sale in its stores. By selling these items, Goodwill extends their useful life cycle and keeps them from being thrown away. Even donations that cannot be sold provide value for Goodwill’s mission and help preserve the environment. In 2016, Goodwill kept more than 32 million pounds of materials out of landfills through recycling and other efforts. The nonprofit’s recycling of cardboard and paper pulp alone saved more than 53,000 trees from being cut down.
