I truly believe in the saying: "Reduce, RE-USE, RECYCLE." And yes, one man's trash really is another man's treasure. Found your blog a few weeks ago and am enjoying your sartorial style. Now if you just had a few more clothes for women in the shop ...Lee Ann
sure it does; less stuff in the landfill, when demand doesn't outweigh supply, less things will be produced and more things will be re-purposed, reused .... .....
Reusing furniture or whatever makes a smaller footprint on this planet and that is always good. Besides, why buy new when you can buy a real treasure and continue to trade up to better furniture with recycling.Gretchen
I do, most definitely! I just had a huge party and instead of buying paper or plastic plates and napkins, I bought everything I needed in glass ware, including forks, spoons and table linens (I was picky but it was worth it) and when I was done, what ever I didn't want to keep, I returned as a donation to the thrift shop I started from. :) They win twice! Earth wins bunches!
Heck ya! One's man's trash is another man's treasure.
Oh yes! Happy Earth Day!dee dee
Yes! Probably 80% of everything I own (including furniture, vehicles and pets, lol) is thrift, hand-me-down or otherwise used. I like how I am not creating demand for cheap, disposable items that may have been made by underpaid or child laborers. Of course, it also cuts down on pollution because, again, I am not creating demand for new items.
It certainly does. It saves perfectly good pieces from the trash heap and gives them a longer life.
