Building Smart CommunitiesMaking a Difference to People in Your Neighborhood
We all know it can be a challenge to get rid of items in our households…even if they’re free!
Whether it’s a safety concern, no means of pickup or simply no-shows, what seems like an easy solution can be very frustrating. We can help!
CheckSammy Provides a Solution
North Americans are throwing away far more textiles and home goods than ever before.
“What many do not realize is that when an item is thrown away, it is not only the item itself going to waste, but the natural resources required to create it,” states the third annual State of Reuse Report.
“This means 700 gallons of water for every T-shirt sent to the landfill, or 1,800 gallons of water for each pair of jeans.”
The report also revealed the continued need for consumers to embrace the full cycle of reuse — to not only donate, but also shop for used or upcycled products.
“While there is a consistent base of people (40 per cent) who purchase pre-owned goods at least once every few months, 60 percent of North Americans are shopping thrift once a year or less,” states the report.
There are many sobering statistics about the state of our landfills but the most impactful statement still remains…
NORTH AMERICANS SEND 9.5 MILLION TONS OF REUSABLE ITEMS TO THE LANDFILL EVERY YEAR, 95% OF WHICH COULD BE REUSED OR RECYCLED.
There are also safety concerns with many reuse/resell sites.
Police stations have even set up “safe exchange zones” for individuals to purchase or exchange items.
While we encourage the use of those sites, we also want to offer an alternative!
Current ProblemNO CONVENIENT MEANS OF DONATING
As much as there are great organizations that will accept donated items, they have to be physically dropped off or make arrangements for pick up.
Problem are encountered when a proper sized vehicle is not available or pick up does not happen when expected.
