News-Antique.com - Nov 09,2011 - Recycling has gone beyond just newspapers, cardboard, glass and plastics. Making use of durable goods from yesteryear is a form of recycling. You can help reduce waste by purchasing existing goods. When you give new life to existing goods it reduces new manufacturing waste, greenhouse gas emissions and reduces pressure in our landfills. It conserves our natural resources and our environment. The more we recycle, the less garbage winds up in our landfills and incineration plants. By reusing aluminum, paper, glass, plastics, and other materials, we can save production and energy costs, and reduce the negative impacts that the extraction and processing of virgin materials has on the environment.
Have you ever thought about purchasing antiques and collectibles as a way to reduce your contribution to the waste stream? That’s what we call ‘nostalgic’ and ‘green’ shopping. (The green ideology is an ideology which places a high importance on ecological and environmental goals.)
