3 R Friday

Welcome to 3 R Friday

A weekly series of simple tips geared toward helping you darken your shade of green. Easily.

Reduce: Reduce your water waste by not washing your car yourself. Instead of washing your car at home or at a self serve carwash take it to an automatic carwash that recycles their water (which most do).

Reuse: Reuse everything! After an item has served its original purpose challenge yourself to find a way to use it again before you recycle it, compost it, or discard it. You might be surprised at the clever ways you find to reuse an item.

Recycle: Recycle outgrown baby clothes, furniture and toys at Hand-Me-Downs.com. They even take older child’s items like backpacks and bikes.

Hope you found these tips helpful. Feel free to share any tips you may have.

Have a Great Green Weekend!

Pushing yourself to reuse can be an eye-opener. It's amazing how much we throw away without even a second thought.

Thanks Kim! I really enjoy this feature.

I totally agree Daisy. I still have to work on this aspect!
