Yesterday I received an email from the people behind the great site 'Do The Green Thing' reminding me of their green thing of December - buy an old thing, not a new thing.
They explain on their website that "new things are the fanciest and most specced-up things and have the almost irresistible appeal of being the latest things. But manufacturing a new thing uses resources and energy, all of which creates CO2, so instead of buying a new thing, buy an old thing. Old things save us CO2 and come with character, romance, mystery and history all included as standard."
We introducded Do the Green Thing on November, when their recommendation was to turn your lights off early and have some fun in the dark. Their humor is funny as always as you can see from this video:
Check out their website for more interesting green materials (including great videos) and don't forget to look for an old thing or two!
