Poets Sharing & non-Profits Building Communities

-- Recommended Resource --

Today's recommended resource is an inspiring example of seeing a genuine need in society, finding a way to fill that need, developing the funding for the project and helping the planet be greener at the same time.

* I received this information recently from a fellow member of the SanDiego Waste Management Group:

"Green Beach America http://www.greenbea is a non-profit, 501(c)3 dedicated to providing barrier-free homes for disabled Veterans. Green Beach homes use energy efficient methods and sustainable building materials to maximize energy conservation and provide a clean environment.

The exchange is an outlet store that sells donated goods for resale. Local contractors, retailers, and private individuals have donated a variety of home improvement items (new as well as used) such as furniture, home accessories, building materials, and appliances to the exchange.

The exchange sells these donated goods to the general public at a fraction of the retail price to help fund the construction of our Green Beach America homes. The exchange provides an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable materials out of the waste stream while providing funding for Green Beach’s mission."
