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:
Two lucky winners** will each win a $250 Amazon gift card.

    Use paper on both sides, reusable shopping bags, and carry a reusable bottle for your waters or tea rather than buying water bottles every time you go out.

    After I open the mail, I take all the envelopes and cut them into note sized scrap paper. Then, after they are used for scrap paper, I then recycle them. This saves us money, since I don't have to buy note pads, and helps the environment too.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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 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.

    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.
