Recycle and reuse.
Recycling and reusing are easy ways to ensure that you’re not adding extra trash to the country’s already overflowing landfills. Refresh yourself on what is recyclable and learn how the process works so you can be sure you’re doing it right. We encourage that you use your creativity when it comes to reusing! Ditch the plastic water bottles and plastic grocery bags and go for reusable ones. Fix items before throwing them out or find ways to repurpose them into something else you can use. These and other efforts can make a huge difference!
Mind your water consumption.
Every day, people waste water in all sorts of ways. Be aware of what you’re doing and what you’re wasting by looking for ways to cut back. Here are a few ideas:
Take shorter showers.
Turn off the spout when brushing your teeth.
Submit work orders for any leaks you notice.
Eliminate bad habits.
Consider how your habits are affecting the environment. How much water, energy, and non-recyclable products do you use every day? How much of it do you actually need? Eliminate excess waste by making your own products. You can also work on making meals to match how much you’ll eat (sticking to specific serving sizes can help with this!).
