Planet Green Joins Goodwill’s Donation Movement

From Goodwill Industries of Southern Rivers


Goodwill Industries of the Southern Rivers, Inc. has welcomed Planet Green™ — the television network devoted to conscious living — as an official partner of the Donate Movement, a public awareness initiative designed to teach consumers about the power of their donations on both people and the planet. A multi-platform media destination, Planet Green joins Family Circle, Hanes aHaHhANEand Levi’s in an effort to raise awareness of the movement, the Donate icon, and the power of donations in our communities.

“Goodwill and Planet Green are working together to encourage consumers to donate consciously and responsibly to reputable organizations that can turn donations into something more,” said Jane Nichols, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of the Southern Rivers, Inc. “Goodwill and Planet Green are calling on consumers to ‘reduce, reuse and repurpose,’ and focus on Goodwill as both a donation and retail destination.”

In line with the partnership Planet Green is launching a new docu-series, “Dresscue Me,” premiering on April 19 at 10:30 p.m. ET featuring self-taught designer Shareen Mitchell. With stores on both coasts, Mitchell works with everyday women on her show to turn vintage clothing finds into chic, fashion-forward frocks. “Dresscue Me” captures the hearts of millions of Goodwill shoppers and fashionistas for unique, affordable one-of-a-kind vintage clothing.

It’s the idea of conscious living,” said Laura Michalchyshyn, president and general manager of Planet Green. “As a partner in the Donate Movement, we are asking viewers to consider the small ways they can help their community and the environment by giving to reputable organizations like Goodwill, which turns donations into jobs that help to strengthen families and build communities.”
