How to Reduce Waste
There are a wide range of conservation efforts that can help reduce buildup to protect water resources and aquatic life.
•Plastic grocery bags are used in several countries. This is an unnecessary and costly practice. Instead, use tote bags. They have a multitude of functions and are environmentally friendly.
•Purchase beverages in glass bottles over plastic. Glass is a reusable resource, reducing waste. Drink water from tap and not plastic bottle. Water in plastic bottles is bad for your health! How Bottled Water Harms
