Reuse and Reduce

Bring your own reusable bag

The very best thing you can do for our earth is to consume less.

Do we need all the things we buy?

How can we simplify and help our earth?

Easy TIPS to reuse, refuse and reduce:

-Use washable water bottles and washable containers instead of plastic bottles.

-Take reusable bags shopping. Sometimes I even bring my own compostable paper bags for bulk produce to avoid plastic bags.

-Cloth napkins are wonderful.

-Use cloth towels or washable rags instead of paper towels.

-Shop where you can fill your own containers instead of using plastic bags.  Co ops do this.

-Give the things you don’t use to someone who can, such as Goodwill or the many other organizations that collect used items.

-Shop consignment stores.

-Use your public library!!

-Leave your car at home, carpool, walk, or use another means of transportation.

-Refuse all styrofoam cups and containers.

    It is good to have reminders on how to reduce and re use. I did a post today and when I was saying use a cottonball was thinking should I say use a cloth (but would they) I guess if you don’t say it no one will think it. Thank you again
