The Problem

I want to spread awareness about reusing items so we can reduce waste and save the Earth.

Our Plan

The action we are planning is to purchase reusable items such as clothing, kitchenware, furniture etc. by visiting Thrift Shops that have valuable causes.

Here is how the project went:

We successfully visited the thrift shops and found items we found useful at a significantly reduced price while being able to donate to our two favorite causes, which were Rancho Coastal Humane Society and Hospice of the North Coast. Especially since the Hospice of the North Coast had a large sale, we were able to save more than 50% off in total.

Through this project I/we learned:

I learned that there are so many ways to help protect this Earth and through these ways, you can still have fun; You can purchase the things you want/need and donate to your favorite causes.

What I/we might change:

I would like to include more people and research more places in Greater San Diego

My/our favorite part of this project was:

My favorite part of this project was being able to have fun while knowing that what I'm doing is helping the Earth and supporting causes I believe in.

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

If you did not know, there are so many places that you may not have heard of around you that have great causes which don't get the appreciation they deserve, and so I hope sometime you can find a chance to look for these places and support them also!
