Simple options to be a better consumer, to protect our environment.
- Reuse. Bags, packing, and wrapping materials.
- Repurpose. “Trash” can become useful solutions.
- Resell. Less in the house is a good thing. Garage sales, giving to Goodwill stores, posting online to find a new home other than the trash heap is valuable for many reasons.
For example: Repurposing salvaged wrapping paper by cutting into useful tags and rolling up a bigger piece to reuse as wrap again is better for the environment and financially sensible while soothing to methodically cut and organize. Refining what we have on hand is rewarding.
