Recycling your used goods benefits your community as well as the environment. The transportation costs associated with retail goods are reduced or eliminated. Consignment stores sell recycled items at lower costs than other stores because they are used. This allows community members to buy things they might not be able to afford at retail value, such as home furnishing & home decor. Consignment stores also employ people to sort items, manage displays and check-out customers -- these employees are able to support their families because of recycled items.
Recycling items like Home furnishings reduces the amount of pollution from agriculture and production. Growing crops, like cotton, wastes 60 percent of the water it uses and pollutes nearby waterways because of the runoff from pesticides. Once the raw items needed for textiles are grown, producing the fabric in a factory releases pollutants like carbon dioxide. Even clothing companies that claim to be environmentally friendly inadvertently pollute if they don’t check the practices of their raw material suppliers or packagers. By recycling textile goods at consignment stores, you reduce the water pollution from crops as well as the emissions from factories.
