913,000 lbs Diverted from Landfill on Earth Day

Last Friday was a win-win for bargain seekers and the Earth! In celebration of Earth Day, the Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat Stores offered a 50% off sale to all customers at both its Tacoma and Lakewood locations.
The Habitat Stores don’t only offer great deals on home improvement items and tools, they also make a difference in the amount of material that ends up in our local landfills. By fostering a donation and reuse cycle in our community, the Habitat Stores help keep perfectly good items from going to waste. Last year in total, the Habitat Stores diverted 913,000 pounds of materials from the landfill.
Thanks to all who shopped the Habitat Stores on Earth Day! Together, you helped us divert 2,310 items (31,000 pounds) in one day! A huge increase from last Earth Day, this sale also raised a total of $15,438 – all which will go towards supporting the building of homes and communities in Pierce County.
