How To Reuse More

Old barrel turned into flower beds

If you reuse an item instead of purchasing 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.
  • Turn unused items into art.
  • Use old glass jars as containers.
  • Use worn clothes as rags for cleaning.
