Green Living Solutions for Small Budgets

Shop at the Thrift Store

You won’t just find great deals at your local thrift store or secondhand shop: You’ll also help the environment by preventing those items from ending up in a landfill and reducing the impact of the manufacturing of new materials. Just make sure you go in with an open mind: Tailoring too-big clothes, painting ugly lamps, and recovering furniture are just a few ways to make someone else’s trash your treasure.
