Bargain shopping is environmentally friendly
From another Times article, a brief quote:
One good thing is that TK Maxx is rather ethical; by recycling unwanted gear it’s not pumping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.This confirms something The Bargain Queen has believed for a long time: the best bargain-hunting grounds are the places that deal with cast-offs and rejects. So when you find super bargains in inauspicious surroundings, give yourself a pat on the back. You've taken something off the road to landfill and given it another life, AND you've scored a great deal in the process.
