April 22 is Earth Day and ReStore is celebrating with a sale of up to 75 percent off lots of items in the store. As you plan your Earth-friendly weekend, schedule some time to shop at ReStore and help us divert usable material from landfills. In 2011, ReStore diverted approximately 354 tons of material from landfills.
Supporting ReStore by donating reusable items or shopping at the store not only promotes and encourages recycling, it also supports Habitat’s mission to provide affordable housing for qualified residents in our community. We saw the exciting results of this support last month when it was announced that ReStore would be the first full house sponsor of a Habitat house in Montgomery County. That means ReStore will provide the full $230,000 needed to build the first townhome in the Maple Hill community in Gaithersburg, which is expected to be completed in the fall of 2013.
Another great way to protect the environment this month is to learn how to reduce energy consumption in your home. When you reduce energy consumption, you help protect the environment and save money on your monthly bills. Habitat for Humanity is offering Watt Watchers, a free two-session course on Saturday April 21 and May 19 to help you learn how to reduce energy consumption. Learn more about the course and how to register.
ReStore has been supporting Habitat’s mission and diverting reusable material from landfills in our community since 2006. Come show your support as we mark our sixth anniversary with a sale in honor of Earth Day on April 20-21.
