Enter Our Giveaway by Sharing How You Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

Many people think their everyday actions are ordinary, and that the things they do every day can’t make a difference to help the environment. P&G believes the most effective changes don’t necessarily start with grand acts and can start much closer to home, by changing the way we think about things like waste.

Our members have told us that they:

  • “Reuse egg cartons to start new plants for our garden”
  • “Reuse jars to store odd supplies like, nails, nuts, and bolts”
  • “Use office paper for art, water plants with bathwater, compost, and have a small garden”

How to Enter:

    Ever since I lived with my mom, we recycled and reused plastic bags, water gallons, jars , plastic containers of all sizes. we mostly use them for the kitchen, we reused plastic containers for putting away leftover food or for my brother who took lunch and we always needed extra containers !! Plastic bags are always needed too in our house for cutting in around in a circle and I used them for my tortilla maker !! we always needed the plastic circle so the flour wouldn't get stuck around . But till this day I continue recycling many other things!!

    We recycle everything possible and I reuse a lot of things to make crafts with my preschool class. We don't run water while brushing teeth.

    We recycle all plastics, aluminum, cardboard and paper through our city recycling program. We repurpose everything we can. I reuse jars and plastic food containers. We always try to use pallet wood when building on our property. I make dog toys out of old socks and medicine containers with beads and any noisy crinkling plastics (like cigarette package cellophane).

    We reuse scraps of yarn to make a bird nest filler. We just place the scraps of yarn (no more than 2 inches long) in a suet container, hang it from the tree and the birds come and get what they want for their nests.

    Steps that my family take to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle are using recycling bins throughout our home, reducing water usage during showers, washing laundry, and cooking. We also watch the labels of items that we buy to select only green products, and we are also mindful of power usage in our home by using energy-efficient bulbs and appliances, and unplugging items that are not in use.

    I live in a one-bedroom apartment. Whenever I buy carbonate soda cans from supermarkets and getting plastic bags and later drink soda every week, I would save up empty cans to store them in my patio storage. I would keep plastic bags to use for as a garbage bag on my little trash can in the bathroom and use other plastic bags to store smelly or wasted food to eliminate odors and drop them in my kitchen trash can.
