Empowering others, diverting stuff from the landfill and cleaning your home - all in one!
It's made possible with Goodwill Industries of Alberta's Cleaning Cloths.
These tidy-up fabric swatches are produced as part of the non-profit's Commercial Services division, which is an inclusive place of employment for folks with disabilities.
The cloths are made from items unsuitable for sale - clothing and materials which would otherwise be sent straight to the dump.
It's making a difference!
In 2013, Goodwill diverted 3.7 million kilograms of household items out of the landfill and recycled more than 13,000 kilograms of clothing in their post-retail operations.
The Cleaning Cloths come in a single or triple pack.
You can buy them in stores, including their Old Strathcona location.
Proceeds go right back into the organization and its many programs.
