Habitat for Humanity store celebrates Earth Day
13 Apr 2021
Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore outlet has been working to reduce waste, help the environment and generate funds to build houses for area residents for more than a decade.
The ReStore home improvement outlet in New Brighton, open to the public, sells new and like-new furniture, appliances and building materials at discounted prices. The inventory comes from donations from individuals and companies.
ReStore is celebrating Earth Day by reducing waste and encouraging people to donate used goods to the store. It encourages people to recycle — by purchasing used goods and keeping tons of building materials and home furnishings out of landfills — and repurposing — by encouraging do-it-yourself projects, according to ReStore Director Pete O’Keefe.
