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
•Use recycle bins. There are many areas that do not provide this service. This is a wonderful business industry for productive growth in small communities! For those interested Start a Recycle Center
•Start a community garden and compost site.
•Donate to charity stores rather than throw out items.
•Use technology recycling centers to reduce ewaste. For those interested in this growth industry read through UNESCO’s Handbook Create a Successful Technology Recycling Center.
