As companies develop products and technology that make our lives better, we can’t forget to take into consideration the effects on environment.
We save energy and materials when we buy fewer things. Here are some ideas: rent or borrow tools and equipment that you don’t use very often. Consider a care share program. Choose products with minimal packaging.
Reusing items slows its journey down the waste stream. Avoiding single-use, disposable products stop waste from piling up. Reuse packaging and containers. Pass on books and magazines. Choose products that are durable and can be repaired if they break.
Recycling one glass bottle saves enough energy to run a hundred-watt light bulb for 4 hours. It also causes 20% less air pollution and 50% less water pollution than making a new bottle from raw materials. Learn how your community recycles.
