Episode 4: Dumping is not Donating

We touch base with Zero Waste Trash Talk family member Jess Johnson to discuss her experiences with donations as a home organizer.  In addition to asking what each organization is accepting before just dumping items on them, she finds out what they do with the items they can't use.   Then we have a chat with the amazing Leah Sherry from Turnip Green Creative Reuse.  Her organization's goal is to divert usable materials from the landfill and from being recycled.  Reuse is their mantra and their facility is an amazing resource for educators, artists and anyone doing any kind of project.  If you donate but don't buy from thrift or reuse stores you are not participating in a sustainable system.
