We all know the three R’s of the environment: reduce, reuse and recycle. But did you know the three R’s are in that order for a reason? Reduce is the most effective of the three R’s because using fewer resources will cut down waste and conserve energy.
Reuse anything that’s resourceful before considering recycling. An empty jam jar can be used to store leftovers, and use silverware and dishes instead of disposable plastic utensils and plates.
Most people already practice recycling, the third R. But consider ways to reuse items or reduce use of items in the future.
