REUSE/REDUCE:

The most effective way to reduce waste is to not create it in the first place. Making a new product requires a lot of materials and energy - raw materials must be extracted from the earth, and the product must be fabricated then transported to wherever it will be sold. As a result, reduction and reuse are the most effective ways you can save natural resources, protect the environment and save money.

Benefits

  • Prevents pollution caused by reducing the need to harvest new raw materials

  • Saves energy

  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change

  • Helps sustain the environment for future generations

  • Saves money

  • Reduces the amount of waste that will need to be recycled or sent to landfills and incinerators

  • Allows products to be used to their fullest extent

Ideas

  • Look for products that use less packaging. Buying in bulk, for example, can reduce packaging and save money

  • Buy Used

  • Buy reusable over disposable items. For example, you can bring your own silverware and cup to work, rather than using disposable items

  • Maintain and repair products, like clothing

  • Borrow, rent or share items that are used infrequently, like party decorations

Donation

One person's trash is another person's treasure. Instead of discarding unwanted appliances, tools or clothes, try selling or donating them. Not only will you be reducing waste, you'll be helping others. Local churches, community centers, thrift stores, schools and nonprofit organizations may accept a variety of donated items, including used books, working electronics and unneeded furniture.​
