Ways You Can Reduce Your Waste
Did you know that Americans produce an average of 4.4 pounds of trash a day? Your waste has a huge impact on the environment and reducing it can help our planet. Here are four tips to help you reduce your waste:
- Use Reusable Water Bottles. Using a reusable water bottle can help save you money and reduce waste! You are able to reduce your plastic waste by carrying around a bottle you can refill.
- Avoid Single Use Containers. Try avoiding single-use coffee cups, utensils, and other food containers. Some restaurants and stores will even offer a small discount if you bring your own cup.
- Use Reusable Shopping Bags. Just like a reusable water bottle, you can start using reusable shopping bags. Many of us have reusable bags but always forget to bring them to the store. Try writing a reminder at the top of your grocery list next time you go shopping.
- Recycle It! There are many common items that we typically trash that can actually be recycled. Look at the bottom of the packaging and look for the recycling symbol for guidance and what can or can’t be recycled.
