Be a Responsible Green Consumer
Live a simpler life. Use less and buy less. Do you really need to buy that? Can you rent it instead? “Renting and Reusing” is an awesome motto to live by for greener living.
Shop at thrift store, junk yards, yard sales, salvage yards, etc. Don't knock it until you try it. Many treasures can be found in the least expected places.
Buy locally grown or locally owned products, produce and beverages. Inquire about the use of pesticides prior to purchasing.
Stop catalogs, junk mail and phone book deliveries-internet shopping is very inexpensive if you need to make purchases-you can buy used items or new items. My favorite tried and true is Ebay.com.
When you are making purchases, read labels to ensure the product was manufactured by an environmentally conscious business.
