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 the number of new back-to-school items you buy.
  • Try on all clothes to see what still fits them then head to a consignment store instead of a department store.
  • Look closely at last years items, backpacks, pencils, notebooks, lunch packs. Are they still in good shape? If so, why buy more.
  • Determine if a younger child can reuse some of their older siblings school supplies.
Reuse: Reuse pieces of scrap wood to make your own garden beds.

Recycle: Recycle with Earth
  • If you have an item that is destined for the garbage dump head over to Earth 911 first. Type in the item you have and your zip code and Earth 911 will find a place near you that will recycle it. Easy Peasy!
Hope you found these tips helpful. Feel free to share any tips you may have.

Have a Great Green Weekend!
