How Can I Reuse More?

If you reuse an item instead of purchase a new item, that is one less thing that could end up in a landfill or need to be recycled.

There are a number of ways you can reuse:
  • Refill your plastic drink containers with water or your favorite beverage.
  • Use both sides of your paper before recycling it.
  • Purchase used items when possible instead of buying new ones.
  • Have broken items repaired before buying a new item.
  • Sell or donate items instead of throwing them away.

If you know of more ways to reuse please add your suggestions below.

Glass Jars

Reuse jars as storage containers. Big Jars are great for storing random things. Along with that, it's great to to store spare change or small items in smaller jars too.

Give to the Poor

I'm sure that kids that don't have the money to get supplies for school would love to have used crayons or pencils that you don't want. So, it would be helpful to ship it to them instead of having it sit in a landfill.


I agree we should give to the poor it make the earth a better place to live we would be able to breath better by not cutting down so much trees me and you should write a strongly worded letter to the people that cut down trees.

Donate to a Daycare

I am a Preschool teacher and I would love for people to donate anything. used paper, old computers, bikes, plastic containers, old cookware, baking pans, old crayons, papertowel rolls, cans, paper cups. I'm sure any teacher would love anything donated.
