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 = finding ways to decrease the amount of garbage we throw away.

Reuse: Reuse = finding ways to use things over and over again rather than throwing them away.

Recycle: Recycle = taking something old and turning it into something new!

These definitions were on the OMSI lunch bag that my daughter's lunch came in. I thought they explained the words very well!

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

Have a Great Green Weekend!

we are a famly of 6. and at one point we had TWO in diapers. with the use of cloth diapers, composting, recycling absolutely every cardboard container, plastic bottle or container, tin can, or glass jar we could have ONE garbage can picked up every OTHER week. recycling really makes a difference. also old food (better yet dont waste it to begin with) goes down the garbage disposal. bread bags are reused for lunches and other storage needs. you can reuse a lot of the plastic containers food comes in and you will not have to spend your money on tupperware to store food or other things! flushable feline pine cat litter means no litter or feces in the trash can and its reusing pine sawdust.

I like the definition for recycling. That might help my students remember which bin is for garbage and which for paper, once and for all.
