While many New Year’s resolutions involve donating items to Goodwill, most people don’t think about the flip side – there are also benefits to shopping at Goodwill.
Thrift shopping allows shoppers to source one-of-a-kind pieces that typical retail stores don’t offer. Think of it like digging for treasure. Goodwill also offers unbeatable bargains, with the majority of items costing less than $10.
Most importantly, shopping at Goodwill is the easiest way to shop sustainably. Manufacturing and distributing new clothing takes a drastic toll on the environment. By purchasing items secondhand, shoppers are reducing the amount of clothing that ends up in landfills.
