Buy Vintage...It's Eco Friendly!

With all the hip, slick, "eco" brands emerging into the market it can be difficult to keep in mind that pre-owned goods can be the most green purchase of all. Vintage and second-hand furniture requires no additional resources to manufacture, is often locally sourced (cutting down on transportation), is pre-off gassed and eases the load on the landfill. Quality vintage furniture can also have an excellent resale value (sometimes selling for the same price it was bought) which certainly can't be said for most new furniture, green or otherwise.
