Reuse Reduce Recycle
WE OFTEN THINK ABOUT WHAT WE CAN RECYCLE BUT BEFORE THAT STEP WE CAN START THINKING ABOUT WHAT WE CAN REUSE INSTEAD.
One great way to reuse is to refill. If you're buying pasta, rice, lentils etc. it is perfect to have your own jar (perhaps a reused one) and go to refill all you need. This way you are keeping down the items that you need to recycle.
Another great way to reuse is to see how you can use your old items instead of recycling them. Turning old jam jars into candles or mini plant pots. This is great fun and means you can reuse what you have instead of buying more.
