Buying Green
Buying Green
Buying Green can mean a lot of different things: purchasing products that are less toxic to the environment, spending a bit more money on higher-quality goods that will last longer, and Buying Green can also mean purchasing "green power" made from renewable energy.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has a lot of information about buying green and making small shifts to your habits that will have a lasting impact on the environment.

If you are looking to buy from a thrift store, Dakota County has a list of thrift stores that can help you find one close to home. Buying second hand helps the environment by keeping perfectly good household items out of the landfill. It also reduces the need to manufacture new items out of virgin materials.
