Here is a link to more information regarding Target's recycling program.
Also, if you are looking into getting some used cardboard boxes, you can also ask a Target store manager if the store can spare some for you. Most Target store managers will be happy to have you reuse their cardboard boxes.
I am hoping that Target add a recycling program for clothes so I don't have to make a separate trip to Goodwill or salvation army. Target should partner with Goodwill and/or Salvation Army to collect clothes for recycling. As individuals stock up on Target clothes, Target can help us find homes for gently used clothes.
There are five great ways you can encourage Target and other retailers to continue to support eco-friendly efforts:
- Click on the Target link above (Target tracks the number of hits to their recycling landing page to see how many people are interested in their recycling, eco-friendly efforts. Therefore, the more you visit the website, the more eco-friendly activities Target will pursue in the future).
- Participate in the Target recycling program. As the recycling bins fill up, Target management will know that they are making a difference.
- Highlight/compliment the Target staff on their eco-friendly living efforts. The information is funneled back to Target management.
- Mention to Target that you enjoy and prefer to shop at Target because they are active eco-friendly living supporters and help out local communities.
- Mention to other retail stores that you visit and shop that you are concerned about the environment and would like them to explain their eco-friendly living practices to you.
