Eco-shopping is an oxymoron – or is it?  Shopping our way to a greener future seems like a bogus notion.  The moment you buy something, that very same thing is built again, using new resources and energy.  But it really all depends on what you buy –and I’m not talking about the latest “green goods”. 

Baltimore Eco-Shopping

The only act of shopping that could truly be considered environmentally friendly is buying merchandise that already exists, such as: antiques, vintage fashion and used and traded goods.  Shopping at your local antique store and thrift shop not only protects the environment, but it also supports small business and creates jobs. 

Baltimore city has more than 100 independent antique and thrift stores. In addition, area charitable organizations, such as Goodwill Industries, that sell donated goods, are extraordinary stewards of community improvement. Along with protecting the environment and stimulating local business, buying used goods also helps the treasures of today make it to museums tomorrow.
