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.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
