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:

    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.

    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 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.

    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!!

    I place banana peels by the outdoor plants to prevent the rabbits from eating the stems. I also put cucumber peels along the grass edges that have an ant problem; it rids the ants. At the same time I am performing natural pest control, I am also composting.

    We recycle and re-use as much as we can at home. We also recycle at work in my department. I frequently pull items out of the garbage to recycle. I dry laundry on the line spring through fall. We try to salvage as much as possible when remodeling our old farmhouse.

    My family uses several different methods of recycling/reusing. We try very hard to get many uses out of items without wasting. Unfortunately, we live in a rural area that does not have a paper/ plastic recycling plant. So, we use alternative methods. One example is we reuse all plastic bags received at the grocery store as mini trash bags that go in the small cans in the bathroom. I also use the same plastic bags to cook my baked potatoes in the microwave. We also recycle all of our scrap metal and aluminum cans.
