By now, most of us know that recycling is good for the environment. There are of lot of online resources and organizations that provide people with good information about the value of recycling. However, what often gets lost in these conversations is tangible ways the average person can recycle more. It’s easy for a person to be so confused about the process of recycling that they fail to do it entirely. Here are some tangible things you can do to recycle more at home.
Repurpose Your Containers
Throughout our lives, we go through tons of plastic, glass and cardboard containers. They are literally everywhere, from packages we get in the mail to containers we pick up at the supermarket. Instead of throwing these packages out all the time, you can reuse them! You could wash a glass bottle out and re-use it for a number of different purposes, and the same goes for other materials as well. There are a lot of ideas you can look to online for inspiration for reusing your containers. Recycling doesn’t have to be a process that involves a waste management company. You can recycle effectively within your own home.
Keep Plastic Bags
Ideally, you should use reusable canvas bags when you are shopping at the supermarket. However, if you aren’t able to do so, it’s important to make sure that if you do get plastic bags that you keep and reuse them. This is a popular idea, and surely you know someone who has a drawer in their home dedicated to plastic bags. All these bags could one day find a new purpose, which will prevent them from just going to waste in a landfill.
If you get a newspaper delivered to your home, you could use it in the future to package any fragile items you may have. This can be especially helpful if you are planning to move soon. You could also give the newspaper to someone you know is moving to a new place.
Make Old Towels Into Rags
As time time goes on, you’ll probably find that you have old towels in your home that aren’t fit to used after baths and showers. However, they could still be valuable if you use them for another purpose. You could cut them down and use them as rags to clean your home. This will allow you to save money & materials.
