Here is a list of some of the things you can do to reduce garbage: • Use a reusable lunch bag or box, you won’t need to throw away a paper bag everyday! •When you make a purchase, don’t take a bag unless you absolutely need one. •Rent things you use infrequently instead of purchasing them. •Use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins. •Use a sponge or cloth instead of paper towels. •Look for items that use little or no packaging. •Use reusable plastic containers for food instead of plastic bags. •Use rechargeable batteries instead of disposable ones. •Read books, magazines, and newspapers at the library instead of purchasing them. •Use plates, cups, and utensils that can be washed instead of ones you throw away. •Purchase items like juice and detergent in concentrate when possible. •Avoid buying foods in single serving packages.
