How are you? I hope you had a good summer. I know I haven’t shared a newsletter since March, but I’m ready for a Fall Refresh. I’ve also heard it called a Post-Summer-Reset? These two phrases summarize nicely how I like to view autumn as a time of year to reevaluate, reassess, and reboot.
Donating and recycling resources
I’m often surprised by the fact that I’ve been working to create and maintain order with my clients for the past 15 years. The ongoing process of organizing and reducing takes time, effort, and resources. Over the years I’ve discovered some great resources. Here are some that have helped me this fall.
Keys for Kids:
This nonprofit organization is operated by volunteers who inspire youth to become involved in their communities through recycling keys. Do you have a bunch of old keys that don’t unlock anything? Recycle them now with Keys for Kids.
Bay State Textiles:
This resource offers a solution for unwanted textiles. They partner with schools and communities to create a new source of revenue from donated textiles, shoes, and clothing. Do you have clothing items that you’ve been meaning to fix but haven’t? Bay State textiles will take a jacket with a broken zipper, a shirt with missing buttons, socks with holes in them, and more. Donate today and save on your tailoring bill.
For years I’ve been recycling my used printer ink cartridges at Staples, but I discovered recently that they recycle all types of tech, batteries, and more. Gather up all those outdated tech cables and adapters and recycle them at Staples. You’ll earn Staples credit when you do.
By reselling new and gently used items, Goodwill nonprofit organizations provide job training, employment placement services, and other community-based programs for people who have barriers to employment. Donate any clothing you haven’t worn since before the pandemic, and any household items you haven’t used since then. Your donations will help support job placement services, and preserve the planet.
St. Jude’s Ranch for Children:
This non-profit organization provides a safe, nurturing home with therapeutic residential treatment services to thousands of abused and neglected children. Their greeting card recycling program helps teens establish life and work skills. Do you have greeting cards that you’ve intended to send, but haven’t? Take time, now, to reduce your stash and recycle them with St. Judes.
