Chances are a new game system, computer, iPod, cell phone or other electronics will come into your house this holiday season.

Going Green doesn’t just mean changing the way you do things. It can be fun too. Have you ever considered that just by shopping you can have a Green Scene experience?
It’s true think about it this way you can do your part to save the planet and some cash by visiting your local flea market or reuse it center. Just by shopping at a flea market or reuse it center, you're already recycling.
