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”

    I reuse water bottles to help save plastic. I also work at a paperless vet clinic and it's taught me how to reuse paper. I never need to buy post it notes again!

    My family recycle any plastic that has the recycle symbol, glass, and aluminum. Even if we buy something plastic or anything recyclable away from home, we bring them home. We have a garden and don't use chemicals. We reuse things like crazy like cottage cheese and milk containers, tissue paper, clothes(we make them into pillows or rags depending on their appearance), we do many things during a drive and use energy efficient appliances. My dad reuses peanut cans or canned food cans to store things in. We only use cold water when washing out clothes and line dry them in the summer.

    We recycle newpaper, paper, cans, glass, etc. Day old bread we feed to the birds also. And we only use cold water when we wash our laundry.

    I bought a reusable Britta filtered water bottle. Rather than go through cases of bottled water, I refill my bottle several times a day.

    I try to conserve energy by unplugging unused electronics and appliances. I hear that energy is still being used even when a device is not in use but is plugged in. I turn off the water when brushing my teeth until I need it. I repurpose clothing and jewelry whenever possible. I reuse containers for storage and other purposes. I turn off lights that aren't in use. I use the energy saving feature on the dishwasher. If I don't finish a glass or bottle if water I give it to my plant instead of pouring it down the drain.

    We do simple things like adding the coffee grounds to our azaleas outside--or sometimes I use them for body scrubs. I reuse containers and we put body scrubs or body butters that we make inside. We always try to see if we can reuse something before it even goes in the recycling bin.

    When packages come in boxes we use them for a fire starter for our wood stove instead of recycling.

    I save aluminum cans for my neighbor and save the pull tabs for a school that donates for a child on kidney dialysis. win win win

    We make sure to turn off all lights, fans etc. as soon as we leave the room

    Where I live provides us with a recycle bin that tells us what items we can recycle. It helps a lot because I did not recycle at all, and now that the bin is provided for us, we have no excuse. Recycling is very important to me
