[ARCHIVED] Reuse and Resell Your Household Items
Looking for new threads but don't want to pay retail price? Reluctant to throw away a prized pair of shoes?
Reusing and reselling goods help protect our environment and our health.
Reusing diverts waste from landfills, which emit greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. These same gases have been linked to respiratory diseases, including asthma.
Additionally, buying used reduces demand for raw materials and gives items a second life.
In 2013 alone, over 16,000 tons of solid waste were generated in Issaquah. Reusing and reselling are great ways to help lower this number.
Besides the environmental and health benefits, reusing and reselling help the local economy and save you money. Below are several local businesses and organizations that accept, repair or sell used goods:
