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:

    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!

    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 teach the kids to recycle by having them help sort and take out the recycling. We reuse containers. We use containers instead of plastic bags for school lunches.

    We recycle everything we can. We have taught out 3 year old and 4 year old the importance of recycling, whether it be putting plastic, paper and glass put for the city to pick up or passing on toys and clothing they have outgrown to other children. For the last 2 years we have used a cheap compost bin my husband made to make homemade compost for our garden. Less trash and we saved money on gardening! With so much plastic you accumulate with small children I have started reusing food containers to hold my children's art supplies like paints and crayons and small toys. (For example, I use an old washed out plastic french fried onion container to hold crayons and a small pad of paper in my diaper bag.)

    I carry totes to the market. When they are dirty I just wash them. Reducedplastic. Sometimes when a plastic bag is necessary, I try to reuse it by making it a trash bag. The take-away containers from restaurants are reused to plant some kitchen herbs etc.

    We already recycle what we can and definitely reuse just about everything. Sometimes I wonder why do I even have trash pick up service because we barely have one trash bag a week out of a family of five. Turn off lights when leaving a room, wash clothes in cold water, turn off water while brushing teeth, use old clothes as cleaning cloths, carpool when we can, are some of our examples

    Instead of tossing old t-shirts/linens away we cut them up into pieces and use them as rags to wipe around the house.

    We recycle, I repurpose wastebaskets for garden containers. A wrought iron daybed frame is in my garden, the morning glory's love it. An old bowling bowl takes the place of the glass gazing ball that broke one windy day. I also have an old woodstove that makes a beautiful planter.
