Easy Ways to Recycle and Reduce Waste

Source: www.ourearth.org

  • Look for products marked with “Post-Consumer Content” and “Recycled Content”
    Computer printer paper, notebooks, paper towels, toilet paper, plastic products, and many other household items can be found that are made from at least partially recycled materials.
  • Reusable bags
    Rather than using paper or plastic bags, use reusable bags instead.
  • Stop getting “junk mail”
    Don’t let paper be wasted on mail that you do not want anyway. Just call the customer service number printed on the catalog or advertisement and ask to be removed from the mailing list. You can also use Catalog Choice, a free service which lets you decide what you receive in your mailbox.
