It’s true. And it’s so very sad that, as a society, we “need” so much, and buy so much, and throw away so much!
Many of us try to do our share and we Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. In fact, we don’t really contribute to a healthy economy at all because we also Restrict, Revive, Reallocate, Reassign, Rebuild, Repurpose, etc. Some of us are certainly not typical consumers.
And maybe we are making a bit of a difference? Maybe?
But, still there is so much STUFF!
Thankfully, because we live in a society with many generous donors, there can be a bit of a bright side. When you donate your valuable rejected items to Thrift Shops for Nova West Island, we can offer them for sale in our boutiques. And by selling your treasures, we raise valuable funds to provide health care to the community.
So then, when you and I DO need/want to buy something, 90% of the time we FIRST go to one of the Thrift Shops for Nova West Island boutiques! We’re smart, economy-minded shoppers. We get a fabulous selection and great prices too. And we know we are making a difference!
Indeed, if we can’t find the items we need at a Nova Thrift Shop, they are probably computer related.
