Donate your jewelry.

I am prone to clutter. [ Admitting it is the first step in recovery. :) ] It can be so hard for me to part with many of the items I have but being able to recycle them certainly make me feel a lot better about getting rid of them. I've written about purchasing environmentally responsible jewelry, but it wasn't until a conversation with Nicole Lorimer that it occurred to me that I could donate jewelry too! Thanks Nicole! Check out GreenKarat.com to donate the jewelry you no longer wear.

Remember these steps to reduce the clutter in your home and the waste in our world:

* Reduce - Do you really need it?
* Reuse - Can you use it again before getting rid of it?
* Recycle - How can this be used differently or reprocessed for use again?
* Restore - How can I replace the resource I consumed?

The order matters. Have fun decluttering!

Hi,

You could also donate your old jewelry to the Radical Jewelery Makeover. Check it out at: www.ethicalmetalsmiths.org

Recycling is a great way to decrease the demand for freshly mined metal.
Good for you for thinking about this.

Best,
Christina

We donated some items that we had intended to sell but just did not want to hassle with it to Collectibles with Causes.

This is actually a great idea....donating jewelry that is no longer of our taste...I have a jewelry resource too that can be of your interest.visit my site at Diamond Wedding Engagement rings

Funny...
This "Green Karat" place is a 3rd party. Why not just donate directly to a charity instead of allowing a 3rd party line their pockets with charitable dollars.
My Wife donated jewelry to the Collectibles with Causes place and we know where the money went. Even got a thank you from the school that received computers bought with the funds from our donation. Very reassuring.
I am sure that the same results can be found using many charities that respect your donations enough to handle them without a 3rd party.

Yes, if you want to donate, I suggest to donate to a cause you know. I have always wondered where all the second-hand/used clothes from USA came from. (I know they come from the USA, but I just wonder if someone donated it and now they sell it to us)
I always buy American toys for my child because they are better quality than the Chinese ones... and are at the same price. I wonder if someone donated them and now they are selling them here in Latin America.
Well, if you want to donate to a good cause, I think I am a good cause. I am currently saving for grad school but at the current rate I will be going to grad school when I retire XD
