Reuse Tips

Reusing items, by repairing them, donating them to charity and community groups, or selling them, also reduces waste. Reusing products, when possible, is even better than recycling because the item does not need to be reprocessed before it can be used again. One man's trash is another man's treasure, so consider selling or donating items you no longer want or need. Some items may lose their original usefulness, but can take on a new life, like turning old clothes into rags. You'll save money on not having to buy new products, while reducing the rubbish you generate.
