While the Eagles’ loss may be a devastating blow for Philadelphians, it’s a boon for folks around the world thanks to an Alexandria nonprofit.

For the last nine years, Good360 sees to it that the stockpile of merchandise from the team that didn’t win the Super Bowl goes to people in need rather than getting destroyed, WUSA9 reported.

The nonprofit works with a network of vendors to see that unused merchandise from various companies is distributed to people in areas of need around the world. This ensures that new or like-new products, including apparel, housewares, linens, toys and more ends up being used by people rather than in a landfill.

“With supply chains snarled and retailers facing inventory gluts, this year saw the potential for tremendous waste,” said Romaine Seguin, CEO of Good360, in a press release. “However, Good360 provided a sustainable solution for companies dealing with excess product, which is not only good for the planet but also for the people receiving these items.”
