Trash is part of our daily lives. There’s no getting away from it, really. However, there are many things you can do daily to cut down on your trash.
Try to buy items with little to no packaging.
Instead of throwing away grocery bags every week, purchase a few cloth bags instead.
Try to use actual silverware and plates instead of paper plates and disposable cutlery.
It may smell, but a compost heap makes soil very fertile and makes use of your food scraps.
Use rags instead of paper towels.
Drink tap water instead of bottled water.
Don’ t throw out used papers, keep them for scrap paper.
Watch the news on TV or online instead of in a newspaper.
Request that you no longer be sent junk mail. In addition to reducing your trash, it will also save you the annoyance of dealing with it day after day.
Have fun with it. You can always reuse a jar or a coffee can to store miscellaneous items. You can join with your kids in the crafts and make puppets with paper bags. You can come up with many ways to make as much use out of your trash as you can.
