Reconsidered Goods Monthly Newsletter July 2018

Well hello and welcome to our first monthly newsletter post. We are approaching our second year of being opened for business at our Patterson Street home and wanted to keep our customers, donors and fans up to date on what is happening in the world of creative reuse at Reconsidered Goods.

Just a little history, for those that are new to us:
Reconsidered Goods was established in January 2016. We received a Spark Grant from Action Greensboro to launch a Pop-Up shop in downtown Greensboro. This grant helped us to show just what fun creative reuse could be to our city. Martha, Paige and Joesph started planning our business and gathered together with some other environmental enthusiast to form our board of directors. After finding the perfect location, we opened our doors in September 2016. And here we are today!

We began weighing our donation intake in the beginning of 2018. YTD, we have diverted 58,442 pounds of items to reuse instead of to the landfill. Thanks for all of our great dono…
