The fact is, Goodwill was green before it became the trend that it is today, and we are proud of our commitment to preserving the environment. There are many ways that Goodwill is green, from recycling and upcycling efforts to the use of green principles in our facilities.
We use preventative maintenance designed to maximize the efficient operation of our equipment and facilities, and when building new facilities, separate construction waste and use regional and low-emitting materials to minimize our carbon footprint. We use green refrigerants in our air conditioners and are upgrading lighting in our locations to more energy-efficient fixtures. Finally, we have installed motion sensors to cut down energy use and we have installed low flush toilets and use green landscaping practices. All of these steps make a big impact on the communities that we serve.
In 2018 Goodwill DataShield recycled nearly 2.3 million pounds of paper. Being green is about being environmentally friendly and committed to community sustainability.
