Focusing on sustainability and zero waste is a main focus for Goodwill, and their products should reflect these goals in relation to their mission of giving job training to those with no options.
I want to address the issue of our unwanted soft goods. We as a culture have a strong tendency to throw out our cloths and other goods for what is new and in style. This wasteful habit is unsustainable and harmful to life here on our planet. If we continue in the direction we have set forth then the result will be: a lack of resources, a harmful biosphere, and ultimately, unlivable conditions.
I have been looking at how to bundle our unwanted fabric together as a new commodity. This new material use will be the base for cement blocks, resin surfaces, and other solid materials. I have attempted the binding process of soft goods in oder to create a solid block of material.
