At Goodwill, every donation we receive is a way to give back to the community & recycle. Southern Arizona is passionate about protecting the open spaces of our beautiful desert home and so are we.
Goodwill is committed to sustainable principles with one of our core guiding values being:
“We provide excellent management of community and environmental resources.“
The environmental impact of each piece of clothing or furniture you donate adds up fast. Did you know it takes over 1,800 gallons of water to create one pair of jeans. Now just imagine the lifetime of your shopping and donation behaviors have on the environment. You can help dramatically slow the cycle of waste with a simple trip to Goodwill.
36 million pounds in 2021/2022!
- Donating a gently used item to Goodwill diverts it away from Southern Arizona’s landfills!
- By shopping at Goodwill®, you can give an item a second (or third) life!
- Your shopping trips and donations support local programs for youth and adults in need!
We did it! We diverted over 36 million pounds of donations from Southern Arizona’s local landfills. We could not have done that without the support of all of our donors across our region! From Casa Grande down to Sierra Vista every bag of clothes makes a difference. With your continued generosity, we can keep that number growing every year.
