How Can I Reduce Garbage?

Source: http://recyclingfacts.org/

There are a number of ways you can reduce garbage. Remember, the less garbage, the less items that need to be recycled!

Here is a list of some of the things you can do to reduce garbage:

  • Use a reusable lunch bag or box; you won’t need to throw away a paper bag every day!
  • When you make a purchase, don’t take a bag unless you absolutely need one.
  • Rent things you use infrequently instead of purchasing them.
  • Use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins.
  • Use a sponge or cloth instead of paper towels.
  • Look for items that use little or no packaging.
  • Use reusable plastic containers for food instead of plastic bags.
  • Use rechargeable batteries instead of disposable ones.
  • Read books, magazines, and newspapers at the library instead of purchasing them.
  • Use plates, cups, and utensils that can be washed instead of ones you throw away.
  • Purchase items like juice and detergent in concentrate when possible.
  • Avoid buying foods in single serving packages.
