Reduce, Reuse,and Recycle....

Reduce, reuse, and recycle: the three Rs. They're the key to living a greener life and reducing the amount of waste you generate. Many people include recycling in their everyday affairs, taking glass, paper, and plastic to the curb or a recycling center. Reusing and reducing mean thinking about purchases and ways to minimize the impact of waste on the environment. How can you incorporate reducing, reusing, and recycling in your life?

Reduce:

* Make a list and check it twice.
* Avoid the just-in-case purchase.
* Think about where the new purchase will go and what it will displace.
*Evaluate want verses need.
* Beware of barbains.
* Beware of warehouses.
* Walk to the store.

Reuse:

* Reuse totes and bags.
* Swap it out.
* Make a charitable donation.
* Be creative.

Recycle:

* Plastics
* Glass
* Paper
* Metals
