Your Role in Waste Reduction

Since everybody does a great job recycling already, the next step is to reduce the amount of total waste by thinking through purchase options and what would result in going to the landfills.
 
Before Shopping:
  • Make a list of what is really needed and the amounts
  • Could there be or Will there be another use for that item

While Shopping:
  • Reflect on what's really needed
  • Will the product last
  • Which package makes the least waste
  • What size is really needed

Take care of product/packaging properly:
  • Share or donate leftovers of products
  • Repair it
  • Reuse or refill it
