Since the grand opening - in 2010, Prague Thrift Store has achieved many of our goals. Both charitable and in terms of organization sustainability. In the article below, you can learn more about the charitable works and milestones we've accomplished to date...
For many of us, the terms “reuse” and “recycle” sounds pretty much the same. However, the terms have very different meanings from environment protection standpoint.
The term reuse, means you utilize a product in its original form (maybe some repairs) While recycle means to destroy the item down to its component and later use it to produce new items.
Reuse and Recycle in comparison looks like recycling does have couple of major downsides:
• Further energy needed to transport and process the recyclable materials.
• Most processes required for recycling (plastic) are highly polluting the environment.
Sadly, recycling involves the use of additional energy and the cost of additional expenses to reconvert the old items into a new one. Meanwhile, if you looking at reusing items, there is no further energy or resource being used. No pollution or minimal pollution occurs.
When you to think of creative ways to reuse old items - you are saving the world.
By donating reusable items to the thrift store you are saving the world and enabling us to achieve charitable goals. Before you think of recycling, think of reusing your or someone else’s unwanted stuff.
This is how you make your contributions to the planet’s well being while helping others in need.
