Like most women, I enjoy shopping. When I came to America, I was introduced to online shopping. Although I still love going to the mall, I also enjoyed doing my shopping online. I did not have to take trips to the shopping center and fight with traffic to look for stuff that I wanted. All I had to do was sit in front of my computer and search for them online. My shopping hours were not restricted because I can shop any time of the day, even through the wee hours of the morning.
According to a green study conducted by Carnegie Mellon University's Green Design Institute, online shopping has advantageous results to our environment because of lesser energy consumption and a reduction by 35% in carbon dioxide emissions compared to shopping in traditional stores. With online shopping, not only are we saving time and money, we also help in energy conservation and promote a cleaner environment.
