Renaissance’s environmental mission concentrates on re-use – the second “R” of the principle of the 4 “R’s” (Reduce, Re-use, Recycle and Reclaim). Renaissance focuses on the re-use of the clothing and household items which they receive, in good condition, and are therefore, reusable.

Give to Renaissance what you would give to a friend

The donations of clothing and household items constitute its economic engine. These donations promote another “renaissance” in the chain of consumption, for the used articles which otherwise would most likely be headed for landfill sites.
 
In 2017-2018, 790,218 donors chose to give to Renaissance and in doing so, benefited both the community and the environment at the same time.​
