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: 
Comment on this blog post and tell us one small step you could take tomorrow to help Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Or, tell us what your family already does! 

Prizes:

    Reuse egg cartons by selling my chickens' eggs :) Reduce waste by being conscious of what can be recycled. Recycle kitchen scraps into the chickens' feed bowl.

    We grow different garden fruits and vegetables than our next door neighbors. When it's time to harvest, we share and get double the bounty! Nothing goes to waste!

    We use newspaper in our flower beds under the mulch. We also use milk cartons as watering jugs. Simple reusing that anyone can do!!

    Garden,even in small spaces,herb gardens are very adaptable to windowsills. Recycle plastic bags at stores that accept them (many are doing this now such as wegmans and target) Carry a reusable bag,they are more durable and reduce waste. Recycle everything that your recycling facility will accept. Shop at farm markets. Compost !!

    I consider each thing that I need to dispose of, whether it can be put in the recycling bin, donated, or if I have another use for it other than what I bought if for, or my favorite is to save it for a garage sale. From spring till fall I hang almost everything on the clothes line. Not only does it help the environment, saves us greatly on our electric bill, but our clothes, towels & sheets smell wonderful. There's nothing more relaxing than sleeping on line-dried sheets.

    We put out garden lots different veggies, and fruits. Grow gourds to make bird houses & many other things. Catch rain water to water garden & flowers. Use bags from dog, horse, chicken feed for trash we have to take to trash bin. Because the material they are made of we can reuse them over & over, cuts down on trash bags. Also use for storing things in. Use the critters manure on garden, flowers, trees any form for fertilizing. Hang clothes out on clothes line from spring till fall, helps electric bill. I turn trip to store into many different things I need to do so I can save on gas. I keep different types of food containers for crafts or to store things in. We chickens, get lots of eggs, feed them any kind of left over food they can eat, Give the extra eggs to people that we know are on fixed income. All they have to do is save egg cartons for me. We like to use egg cartons& small containers for starting our seed for garden.

    I'm setting up a recycling bin in my housing complex so people can start recycling things instead of just trashing them and I always bring my own bags to the grocery store to reduce the amount of plastic bags used.

    We recycle everything that we can, plastic, cans, paper, etc. We try to use reusable bags every time we go to the store, but if we forget, we take the plastic bags to our daycare and they use them to put the kids clothes in if they need to be changed. Also, we have a compost bin that we put all wasted food in and utilize this for our garden!
