Joan Verdon North Jersey Record Published 7:00 AM EST Nov 20, 2018 Which form of shopping costs the planet more – online or in a brick-and-mortar store? The answer isn’t black or white, and both methods have shades of green. This week, North Jersey and the rest of the country gear up for the peak holiday shopping season, both in-store and online. From now until the end of December, online deliveries are expected to top 2 billion packages, and more than 164 million people are expected to visit malls or shop online during the Thanksgiving-Black Friday weekend. In the early days of online shopping, environmentalists and analysts argued that long-haul deliveries by gas guzzling trucks to bring a single package to a person’s house gave the online option a larger carbon footprint than stores and malls, where a single truck delivery could serve hundreds of shoppers. But as online shopping has grown and evolved, the green line has shifted. … [Read more...] about Is it better for the environment to shop online or in-store?

Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Alyssa Giacobbe February 09, 2017 Five years ago, GQ ranked Boston as the worst-dressed city in America, headlining a list that included Omaha, St. Paul, and Buffalo, all of which the magazine found notably, embarrassingly, more chic. “America’s Bad-Taste Storm Sewer” is how the writer described Boston, where “all the worst fashion ideas from across the country flow . . . stagnate, and putrefy.” Examples included boat shoes with socks, sportswear as formalwear, and khakis with pleats. Pleats! The accompanying photo showed a bunch of postgrad frat boys, a few of whom I’m pretty sure I went to college with, in pullover fleece and dad jeans.
