Being good to the earth is a duty that burdens each and every one of us. The good news is that it has never been easier to reduce, reuse and recycle every day household products and do a little bit every day to save the plant.
Finding recycling in your town is as easy as doing an internet search. Many recycling facilities take everything from paint cans to yard waste. Some even take large appliances, but you may have to go to a special facility for that. Keeping recyclable items out of landfills makes a huge difference for future generations.
While recycling is important, reusing is even more beneficial to the earth. Reusing items such as coffee mugs, shopping bags and even antique furniture means that nothing ends up in the landfill. Buy a reusable coffee mug and stop throwing out plastic lids every day. Some stores offer free shopping bags with a purchase. Keep them in your car and bring them to the grocery store to save some plastic bags. Shopping in second-hand stores is not only cost-effective but gives old furniture and clothing a new home and a new life!
