"Over the past four years alone, the Bloomington ReStore has helped divert well over 260 tons from the landfill solely through their recycling efforts. In addition, they have diverted over 20,000 tons a year on average over the past three years through their reuse initiatives. Over these three years, 100,000 individual items have been kept out of the landfill as a result. With support from local donors and shoppers, the ReStore has brought in over $3.3 million on behalf of Habitat for Humanity of McLean County as of 2017.
The ReStore does not plan to slow down anytime soon. In fact, their trajectory plan includes being able to build ten sustainable homes per year, within five years.Growth of the ReStore has supported growth of the local Habitat for Humanity mission in continuing to pay it forward in McLean County. They encourage you to join them in their mission of paying it forward, whether it be by donating, shopping, or volunteering with them anytime throughout the year."
