Today is Earth Day! What a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our beautiful planet and talk about some ways to keep it clean.
We have all heard the phrase “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” many times throughout our lives. And for good reason! Reducing our consumption, reusing things when possible, and recycling materials is vital for maintaining the health of the Earth. YOU are capable of all of these things, and Common Goods can help!
REDUCE! Reducing our consumption of new clothing can be a very kind act for the Earth. Did you know that it takes nearly 3,000 liters of water to make just ONE cotton T-shirt? And this is just one of the many resources that is depleted from clothing production. Shopping second hand is a sustainable alternative to buying brand new clothes. The Earth will thank you for shopping at Common Goods, and with our reasonable prices, so will your wallet!
REUSE! Do you have household goods that don’t serve a purpose for you anymore? Before throwing it out to be put in a landfill, consider donating to Common Goods! We are happy to take your items as they may be useful for someone else.
RECYCLE! All three Common Goods stores are happy to recycle your stained, faded, or worn clothing and linens. Just place them in a kitchen sized bag and label them “recycle.” This will help to keep the BLA clean!
There are so many ways to live a greener lifestyle, and Common Goods can help you get there!
HAPPY EARTH DAY!
