Environmental Promise

At Goodwill Southern California we’ve been “Green Since 1916.”


Reduce, Reuse and Recycle is what we do.

We take pride in our role as an environmentally responsible organization. Each year we receive donations of unwanted items. Reselling these goods not only helps fund training and job placement for thousands of people each year, It also saves more than 130 million pounds of usable goods and waste from landfills.

Strict environmental policies guide all of our business practices and those of our vendor partners. Goodwill Southern California’s green efforts have this wonderful, additional side effect: Improving the health and well-being of the global community.
