Great post! Shopping Just For The Sake of Buying "Green". via @addthis #eco #green

If you were to throw out a perfectly good dining table just to buy a new one made from reclaimed lumber, you would not be doing the environment any good. While the labor and lumber that went into your table could have been better spent making a table for someone who doesn’t have one at all, your perfectly good table is probably going into the recycling bin or the dump. It’s strange, really. I see some of these home-improvement shows redo an entire house in a “green” way when the house was perfectly fine in the first place. And never mind the items we actually need in our houses – we are being sold green versions of products that we don’t need at all – think aluminum can compactors sold as “eco-friendly” – and being told it is OK to consume as long as we consume green…but nothing could be further from the truth.
