It's sad that this isn't upvoted more than the usual 'bread and circus' stuff on PH. Why is this big? When you recycle stuff like paper and cardboard with your waste management company, chances are that it isn't really being recycled. It's really just being stored in a warehouse UNTIL one day when it's profitable to recycle x-material. So with this program, you're helping a non-profit and you're actually recycling something right away. I hope they expand this program to include shipping material like those plastic bags inside your Amazon boxes. You can't really recycle that shipping insulation; most recycling operations just are not equiped to do so, and again it would really help out any organization to get that for free or near free.

@bentossell good point and I'm happy to be proven wrong
@kay0stheory this was the most upvoted post yesterday
@kay0stheory I agree!! Our idea tackles three pillars of sustainability. Economic, environmental and social. It recycles, helps people to help those in need and adds value to communities through working with non profits who get people back in to work and productive activities. Thank you for supporting us.
Agree, should be in the 1000+ vote club.
♻️ reduce - reuse - recycle 💚
this is honestly such a huge idea
Unfortunately the website is a bit vague. Is this a way to donate your clothes by packing them into an amazon box and sending them somewhere with a prepaid label?
@ajsharp yes, Amazon will pay for the shipping to send your items to Goodwill.
@chrismessina RAD. That's amazing, thanks for the explanation.
