No, I don’t mean the Realtors that are newly licensed, but Realtors have been master recyclers for years.
Going green is the “trend du jour”. Many commercials, many TV shows and many magazine/newspaper articles are talking about going green to protect the environment. I applaud these efforts!
My frugal grandmother said “use it up, wear it out, make it do.” That’s part of going green. Another part is reusing current products in a new way… buying used furniture and repainting it or adapting it to a new use. Another part is using products that are renewable resources… for instance, if you want hardwood flooring, use bamboo rather than oak or maple. Even soft thirsty towels are now available made from bamboo. Rather than vertical or mini-blinds made from plastic, use natural wood renewable products. Green products are becoming increasingly available, and at competitive prices. Check your local home store for additional ideas.
What does this have to do with Realtors?
Realtors are the master recyclers, and have been for many years. Selling “used” homes to new owners is the ultimate in going green!
