Sustainability at the Heart of Goodwill
Seattle Goodwill takes pride in being good stewards of the generous donations we receive from community members. Goodwill utilizes donations in a way that creates better futures for our students, communities and our environment.
By donating to Goodwill, you are extending the life of household items and keeping them out of landfills. Last year, Goodwill kept 59.9 million pounds of materials out of landfills. Through responsible recycling practices, Goodwill recorded an 82 percent diversion rate last year.
Our belief in sustainable practices even extends to our administration building, which is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified. The building contains a number of features that reduces our ecological-footprint.
