How You Can Still Make a Difference in Your Community and the Environment When You’re Short on Time
Let’s face it, everyone is so busy nowadays. Like many professionals in the United States, you find it difficult to balance your work and personal life as well as meet the demands of relationships.
Between work, school for yourself or your children or both, and recreational activities, finding time to make charitable donations and give back to your community can be difficult. In fact, even deciding what the best charity donations for non profit organizations are can be a task in itself.
Fortunately however, there are several ways you can give back and make a difference in your community, even if you’re short on time. Have you ever considered clothing donations? Clothing donations are a popular donation choice, especially because they’re so easy to donate. Many charities and non profit organizations offer local donation pick ups as an added convenience.
Local donation pick ups allow you to continue juggling your busy schedule while making a real impact in your community as well as the environment. Simply schedule a donation pick up time with your charity of choice, and leave your gently used clothing items in a bag outside if your home or work. Done and done!
With spring right around the corner, now is a perfect time to begin cleaning out your closet and donating items no longer need. Did you know that the average American discards nearly 68 pounds of clothing each year, 99% of which could have been recycled in some way?
Keep in mind that when you donate clothes, you’re not only making a difference in the lives of those in your community, but you’re also helping to reduce pollution and textile waste in landfills. All of this adds up to create on happy, healthy, and united community that just happens to be really busy as well!
