As many of you know, here at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity and at both of our Habitat ReStore outlets, we put a focus on being as green as possible. From the way we built our new main office on Prior Ave. and University Ave., to the day-to-day operations of our stores, we make every effort to do so in an earth-friendly way.
With Earth Day just a little over a month away, we've been sharing some of these green-efforts on our ReStore ReStoration Corner Blog, and wanted to make sure to give you an updated look into shopping at our home improvement outlets!
