Old things can change lives!

Most of us are counting on the big names in recycling such as Value Village, Renaissance, or the Salvation Army to give us a clear conscience. But did you know that only 25% of donated clothing is not resold in Canada? (1) After a few weeks without being sold, the clothes are sent to specialized brokers for processing. Most donated clothes end up being treated as trash, shredded, turned into rags or sent to poor countries (or they become another source of pollution!). Is this the most eco-responsible way to get rid of your clothes or other unwanted objects? When we think of the ecological impact of certain fabrics, such as jeans, we understand that it is in the best interests of time to wear it! For the person who gives, the good in question has no value. But for another person, it can become a gift! This is especially true for clothes and books. Imagine if each family in Quebec, instead of throwing away, or even putting in collection boxes, resold these goods to make a concrete donation? The best form of recycling, after all, is reuse! Take a tour of your possessions: there are certainly some that you no longer care about. Don’t throw away anymore! These items that are no longer useful to you can be useful to others, and to help NSF help the poor at the same time! The amount of your sales that will be donated to NSF will be used to support local projects here in Quebec, in particular the HOPE project helping youth in difficulty. How to do better? Join the Solidarity Market of Nutrition Without Borders on Facebook HERE. Advertise your items on the Solidarity Market, or advertise your face-to-face garage sale, to put your unwanted goods on sale at an unbeatable price so that they are sold as quickly as possible! Once sold, pay the total amount of your donations before the end of the month on the link HERE To learn more about this new trend, the benefits of minimalism and how making space can change your life, watch an excellent documentary ( 1) Source: https://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/1105967/recyclage-ecologie-habillement
