Well if you consider recycling a form of green living than I guess I'm green. I love vintage & if it is truly vintage than it came from someone else's closet & therefore it is truly recycled. If it is designed to look vintage than it is not a true vintage piece but an inspired vintage piece. Even my car is a 1974 VW. Who needs a hybrid at $25,000.00,when you have a $400.00 VW that gets 35 MPG & is a blast to drive.
