Recycling, being thrifty are the basics of being GREEN! Look at any antique or collectible, you are not only being thrifty and green, but if you are looking at a piece of big store artwork or cabinet, you loose over half its value as you leave the store. If the artwork is from the 40s or the cabinet from 1900-1940 that piece will not loose its value and can be used for many years to come.
