Trash for Treasures....

Have any obsolete inventory headed for a landfill or liquidator? Think about donating it instead! How do you put a dollar value on seeing it put to good use and making kids happy?

My client, yogitoes, received an order of 800 ecodots - a yoga prop that is used like a block. The label supplier used a faulty adhesive that left a marred finish when the label was removed. Rather than have them destroyed, they donated them to a variety of local schools and non profits that put them to creative use. In the hands of kids they became building blocks, stools, props for yoga classes and the basis for art projects! We'll post more pictures as we get them. Here is a list of some of the lucky recipients - think of them when you look at what you aren't able to use or sell!

  1. Thank you so much for the fabulous donation! The kids at Free Arts for Abused Children are going to use them as conceptual pumpkins for a Halloween art project. We sincerely appreciate your contribution and we are glad to help recycle items that others can not use.

  2. We are so grateful at Grand View to have been given these fun yoga dots! Thanks again Sherri!
