Reduction is the highest priority component of the 3 R’s Approach (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). The following are just a few of the easy ways to reduce you waste output.
- Take your own shopping bags to the grocery store. Keep a couple in the car just in case.
- Write lists or notes on the back of scrap paper.
- Choose cloth diapers over disposables.
- Take a lunch box or reusable bag, instead of a paper or plastic bag.
