Best Ways to Recycle Properly

Share |

Recycling We all know the importance of recycling, but to make the most of your eco-friendly habit the most affective way to recycle depends on what you buy. All it takes is a little precycling by taking a minute to consider the products and packaging you’re using, eliminating any extra waste beforehand and purchasing recyclable products. Here are a few things to do:

  • Don't take bags when making a small purchase
  • Use a reusable cloth or string bag when shopping, not plastic or paper
  • Use sponges instead of paper towels, and cloth napkins instead of paper
  • Look for containers that can be reused or at least recycled (glass and aluminum). Reusable containers are an even better way of recycling.
  • Don't buy single use, throw-away products (such as razors, plastic utensils, paper plates, etc.) - look for ones that can be used repetitively.
  • Buy fruits and vegetables, grains, pastas and any loose items without packaging (especially avoid styrofoam and plastic packaging)
  • Don't buy plastic
