Whenever you need to buy something, especially an item that is usually more expensive and lasts a long time, try to find it for sale used. When you buy a used product, you are extending its life. When you buy new, you are responsible for all the new energy and resources it took to buy the new product. A used product adds no more impact on the environment, and of course, you can save money as well. So, the next time you are buying a car, roof rack, snowboard, desk, coffee table, TV, exercise bike, etc., check the classifieds on Craigslist.org, Facebook Marketplace, and Next Door first. Or, buy used when you see an option on Amazon.
