Why Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle?

What Does it Mean to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle?

To reduce is to try to minimize the amount of materials you use that cannot be reused or recycled. This can pertain to batteries and certain kinds of plastics. It is also important to cut down on use of all disposable products even if they can be recycled. That means you want to focus on using items that can be reused. Even if the item can be recycled, it is important to use it as long as you can to prevent the need for another. You can also invest in items that are made to be reused indefinitely in place of disposable items. Finally, recycling is taking items that can be broken down to make something else and making them useful again. Like recycling old plastic bottles to make toothbrush handles. 

Tips to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

  1. Try not to purchase any disposable items especially if you can find reuable versions. You can use a reusable water bottle instead of buying a plastic one or use silverware instead of plastic forks, spoons, and knives. 
  2. In times when you are not able to avoid using disposable items, make sure they are recyclable. You can also find items that are made from recycled materials. Always try to avoid plastic when you can. 
  3. When you go shopping, opt to bring your own bags. In a lot of areas of the world, it may even cost you extra to use bags that are provided by the store. If you do forget your bags and have to get paper or plastic ones, many stores have areas that you can return your bags to be recycled. 
  4. Try to replace paper products with items that can be washed and reused instead. Rather than using paper towels or napkins, invest in cloth napkins and towels. These can be more cost effective as well as good for the environment
  5. Try composting at home by investing in a compost bin. You throw your leftover food like orange peels, strawberry tops, or kale stems into the bin and through a process called vermicomposting, worms will eat your old food and turn it into a great fertilizer for your plants. Not only does it save a ton in gardening supplies, composting also minimizes the amount of waste you dispose of on a regular basis. 
  6. Thrifting your clothes, furniture, and appliances can save you money and reduce your consumption. You can also donate your items when you are finished with them so other people can get use from them rather than trashing your stuff. You can also update your electronics rather than buying the newest upgrade. 

Reducing, reusing, and recycling can make a huge difference in the environment while simultaneously saving you money. You can start with small changes in your everyday life and build up to larger investments. Even if it is just choosing to cut plastic bags or bottles out of your life, reducing, reusing, and recycling can change your life.
