Many people wonder about the environmental impact of their choices. From the way we eat to the way we shop, everything we do can take its toll on the environment. With Earth Day just a few weeks behind us, we thought it might be a good idea to discuss the environmental benefits of shopping through online auction.
Keep Perfectly Good Product Out of Landfills
Each year, retail stores clear out tons of product to make space for new inventory. What was once popular gets quickly replaced with new styles. Unfortunately, much of this older product ends up in our landfills taking up space and contributing to air, land, and water pollution.
Most of the items offered through Lots of Auctions are overstock and shelf pulls from major retail stores. Buying these items through online auction helps keep perfectly good product out of our landfills.
Reduce the Need for New Product
As mentioned above, department stores replace product on a continuous basis. Creating new product uses lots of resources and creates lots of pollution. Shipping product from the manufacturing plant to stores around the country puts more vehicles on the road, creating pollution and hazardous driving conditions.
When you buy liquidation items through online auction, you reduce the need for manufacturers to produce new product. The less people that buy from department stores, the less product they need to acquire.
Local Pick-Up Reduces CO2 Emissions
Most online auctions allow for local pick-up. This provides a convenient option for shoppers. It also eliminates the need for large trucks and airplanes to move product across the country. This reduces CO2 emissions caused by vehicles.
