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:

    I take all batteries I use at home to work so they can be recycled and not end up in a landfill.

    I don't flush the toilet every single time, ew, lolololol, but what a difference it makes on my water usage! Giving no longer needed, or wanted items to shelters, and setting items out at the curb for others to take is a major plus. Also, all of my fruit skins, left-over veggies, cardboard, egg shells, coffee grinds, fallen leaves, grass clippings, and numerous other things go directly into my compost bin. Plastic, and aluminum go into the recycler bins.

    We reuse yogurt cups/containers to start seeds/plants for the garden, just platnted herbs in old Tea Tins,. we raise vegetables, have some fruit trees, We also try to use water conservatively, watering the garden using watering cans rather than using a sprinkler. We are also excited for our new heat system which replaces an old oil furnace. :) big step.

    We buy our cleaning product in concentrated form and dilute them ourselves. By making one or two purchases a year we not only save buying lots of bottles but money too

    We're taking shorter showers, recycling everything, and we have a small garden.

    Some of the things I do : Wash clothes in cold water, recycle as much as possible, and donate household goods and old clothing instead of throwing them away.

    My family takes quicker showers. We all pitch in to save on water around the house.

    Living in an row home in the city makes it more challenging but I have found that using the recyclebank program is a great incentive. Not only are you helping to reduce/reuse/recycle, you get great bonuses and prizes as well. Additionally I use reusable shopping bags whenever possible. I also have been going though my stash of grocery store bags and using them for cleaning the cat's litter box.
