Give the Gift of Time

The Organizing Blog regularly espouses the benefits of reducing, reusing and recycling used clothing and household goods, and you can slash waste even as you buy #holiday #gifts for family and friends. Utopia.org suggests a variety of ecofriendly gifts such as a reusable water bottle to cut plastic waste, a donation to an environmental preservation group or planting a tree. But best gift of all this season, the site says, is the gift of time. It’s hard to come by and incredibly valuable, and spending a few hours or sharing a meal with family and friends will make an unforgettable gift. #SustainableShopping

Donating Televisions

Vietnam Veterans of America will pick up many of your used and unwanted things, including televisions!

Here are a few things to note before scheduling your pick-up:

1. VVA cannot accept console televisions.

2. All televisions must be in good working condition.

3. Most locations do accept portable televisions that are no larger than 27″, but it’s a good idea to call the pick-up service in your area to confirm.

4. All flat screen televisions are accepted.

Schedule a pick-up today and remember, your used things help veterans of all eras!
