First of all, you should try to make things reusable. There are many things that you can reuse time and time again. You can start by purchasing your lunch meat in containers that can be sealed again – this will help when it comes to packaging items in the future for use, and keep the plastic out of landfill.
You can also save jars to use for drinking glasses. Saving shopping bags is a big one. You can take them with you when you go to the grocery store and have the baggers use them instead of wasting more and more bags. Another thing that you can do is try to use recycled materials as much as you can. This helps to cut back on using the resources in the earth. Doing this will also help you to save money in the long run.
Purchasing things in bulk is also a great idea. It not only saves trips to the grocery story, but it also gives you the option to not have as muchpackaging to get rid of if you were to buy smaller packaged items. Plus bu.llk items are usually cheaper.
Instead of throwing out the trash to the dumpster, you can actually take the time to burn your trash if you have this option. This will help to cut down on the landfill masses and will also keep the world a cleaner place.
Watch out when you go shopping to not over buy. This means do not buy things that are not necessities. On top of doing this you will also want to take some time to go through the things that you have and donate them to charities instead of trashing them. This will ensure that you are not adding to the junk that is thrown away in the world.
As you can see, there are things that you can do to promote a cleaner earth and go green – try it today!
