Don’t Buy Green

Want to be green?  Really green?  Then don’t buy green products.  In fact, don’t buy anything.  Be like the early New Englanders, whose maxim was:  Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.

Do you really need another organic cotton T-shirt?  I don’t.  Most of my apparel is at least 25 years old.  It’s well-made, high-quality clothing.  I don’t need to replace it.  I did, however, come upon a great way to refresh my wardrobe without adding to my carbon footprint.  I went to the Garment District and found some cool vintage clothing.  When I returned home, I picked out some items I didn’t enjoy wearing and brought them back to the store, where they accept free donations.  (They also buy used clothing, by appointment only.)
