More than 3 R’s

The three R’s of environmental living (Reduce, ReUse, Recycle) are just the beginning. Here’s my R’s from this week:


Reduce: I’ve reduced packaging, plastic, and energy use (I unplugged the fridge again this week, and bundled errands to reduce driving).

Re-Use: washing out and re-using bags and tubs, mostly.

Recycle: the commercial recycle bin, but I also have recycled textiles … old stained tshirts into rugs, and I’m working on chicken feed bags into totes.

Repair: mending and fixing prevents things from becoming waste and keeps them in use longer.

Rot: anything that can be composted should be! Make dirt!
