Green Tip and Trade

Buy Used

Christina Huh Nov 26, 2010

To steal a euphemism from the car industry, buying “pre-owned” instantly saves all the resources that would have gone into – and the pollution that would have come out of – producing a brand-new item. Whether you’re shopping for a house, furniture, a vehicle, electronics, clothes, jewelry, books, or most anything else, going vintage is the best way to go green.
