Carbon Footprints and Frugal Living

It can be a challenge to find ways to reduce one's carbon footprint but frugal living and reduction of one's carbon footprint has been made easier by resources such as the Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity Restore, thrift stores like Country Peddler Thrift Store.

There are numerous thrift stores one can utilize to find ways to stretch one's budget. Specialty shops like Trendz is a great place for young families and frugal grandparents to find quality items for children and young mothers.

Another thrift store that carries more of a whole family sort of diversity of household items is that of Goodwill. Thrift stores don't have to mean "dumpy" clothing. You can find vintage clothing or trendy styles. You can find decorations for your home and even costumes for your kids Halloween or dress up clothes for play.

By shopping at thrift stores for clothing, decorative items, furniture and other items, you save more money and thus can stretch your dollars even further.

You may wonder how shopping at thrift stores can reduce one's carbon footprint. By purchasing products already produced and already shipped, we can reduce. Every step toward recyling, whether it is by purchasing thrift store items, or recycling newspapers and other refuse, it all moves us to a cleaner environment and reduces carbon use.
