Go Green! A Thrift Town Celebration of Glorious Green!

March is a perfect time to celebrate GREEN! Of course, St. Patrick’s Day falls in March and as the old Irish legend has it, if you don’t wear green on March 17th prepare to be pinched!  Ouch! The first day of Spring also falls in March and with this season of renewal we see an abundance of fresh, green growth in our landscapes and gardens. Green is soothing and peaceful. It gives a sense of naturalness and earthiness.

Amazingly, there are literally hundreds of shades of green so it might be hard to pick a favorite green when you consider such fabulous colors like emerald green, lime green, mint green, sage green, olive green and seafoam green! And two of the top Spring/Summer 2019 Pantone colors are “Terrarium Moss” and “Pepper Stem” – both lovely shades of green!photo green shirt

And of course, another reason to celebrate GREEN is the fact that “Green Living” has become such an important focal point for how we choose to live our lives. Green often represents Sustainable Living, which describes a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the Earth’s natural resources, and one’s personal resources. Those who embrace sustainable living commit themselves to reducing their carbon footprint by altering their methods of transportation, energy consumption, and/or diet.

Thankfully, Thrift Town provides many opportunities to celebrate GREEN! We have plenty of “lucky” green items to help you celebrate the luck of the Irish on St. Paddy’s Day:

We also have lots of fabulous books on Green Living, Gardening and More!

And of course, every time you shop secondhand you are practicing sustainable living by buying recycled items instead of new items – shopping at Thrift Town is all about responsible shopping that you can feel good about and it saves you lots of GREEN money too! Take a look at some of these incredible green finds from Thrift Town:
