Be green, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle


Reduce, Reuse, RecycleReduce, this actually means living in simplicity and if possible, going back to the basics and most necessary. Reducing does not necessarily mean that you avoid buying. It is in making the most out of the purchases and making only smart buys.

  1. Reduce your purchases: buy only what you would likely need and would be using regularly. Less stuff you keep, the lesser trash you would be making in the future.
  2. Reduce paper consumption: switch to using cloth table napkins instead of paper napkins for the dining table. Instead of paper towels for the kitchen, use washable rags.
  3. Reduce waste, buy in bulk items that are for regular consumption (like juice drinks, soda, candies, pet food, toiletries, etc.), buy them in bulk. Products packaged for individual serving, when combined together, make a ton more garbage than those sold at large quantity. Plus, it is always cheaper to buy in bulk.

Reuse, in the hyped world where buying the latest and freshest things are the fashion, it is a lot more practical and sensible to be reusing what we already have since resources aren’t as renewable as we want them to be. The key to this tip is imagination.

  1. Hold and support garage sales: putting for sale items that are still usable are one way of reducing clutter in your home and encouraging reuse of things that may be helpful to others, instead of just collecting dust in your attic and closets.
  2. Switch to Reusables Cloth napkins and rags are better than their paper counterparts. Buy reusable lunch boxes for packing pre-prepared food to go, instead of buying single serve food in individual disposable packages. Carry your own reusable water bottle or mug. Buy rechargeable batteries…
  3. Donate things that can still be used by others. Many charitable institutions might need some of the stuff that you might consider as clutter or trash in your home. Not only is this a great way to reuse things, but it also gives you a sense of being a socially and morally responsible individual.

Recycle, one efficient way of preventing too much waste is by recycling things that others might just think to throw away. Reinventing and making new and better use of supposedly wasted stuff. This will make one a more creative and resourceful hero of the environment. The key to this earth-saving method is – again – imagination.

  1. Recycle paper: trees are one of the most important natural resource in the planet. Unfortunately, it does not renew fast and it would take years to grow back the trees that were cut down to be used for our consumption. Make good use of tree products. Recycle paper as much as you can. Make notepads from used papers to use as scratch paper for drafts and other unofficial writing purposes. Save and reuse gift wrappers.
  2. Buy goods from recycled materials: supporting the recycled goods market encourages the awareness and growth of the recycling trade and practice. Recycled products are evidently more environment-friendly than newly manufactured ones.
  3. Make a compost pile, start a compost pile making use of fruit and vegetable scraps from your kitchen. You can also add garden wastes like leaves and grass. This will cut down the amount of biodegradable waste your home produces. And the compost produces a more effective fertilizer than those available at the stores.
