The phrase ones man trash is another mans treasure may remind people that certain products can be recycled and reused, but it also may help make the environment a more sustainable place to live. DVA, Inc., the fastest growing privately-held wholesaler of excess inventory and overstocks in the USA, recently opened Kuglers Golo Outlet and is making the common expression a reality for shoppers who wish to purchase refurbished items at discounted prices. At the same time, the wholesaler is minimizing trash and waste in the United States.
To add to the well-known environmental problems to which people are accustomed on a daily basissuch as pollution and litteringthere are some facts of which many are unaware, as reported by the Huffington Post (1):
Americans throw away a whopping 68 pounds of clothes on average each year, and only buy 10 pounds of recycled clothes annually.
On average, each person in the U.S. discards eight dry cell batteries per year. Recycling both rechargeable and single-use batteries saves water, energy and natural resources.
Americans dispose of more than 200 million tires every year, adding up to a whole lot of trashed rubbernot to mention wasted energy.
