Green Tip 2

I'd like to share this quote from William Morris, designer in the 19th century Arts and Crafts Movement, "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." This sentiment is even more important today. We're bombarded with advertisements trying to entice us into buying useless, ugly *stuff* that we don't need, that breaks not long after we acquire it, or never worked in the first place. Then we toss it out and it goes to the landfill; and the cycle begins again. To put it in modern terms, stop buying crap.
