Go green and save green with the 3 R’s of the environment: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Each one as important as the next when it comes to cutting down waste. By incorporating these 3 key essentials you can help your community and the environment by saving money, energy and natural resources. Make Earth Day every day with these simple tips.

Reduce

  • Say no to disposable shopping bags and bring a Mixed Bag Designs reusable bag instead
  • Choose products with the least amount of packaging
  • Buy items in bulk like shampoo and laundry detergent (larger economy-size products or ones in concentrated forms use less packaging and usually cost less per ounce)
  • Avoid over-packaged goods and purchase items in bins when available
  • Use a dish cloth or cloth napkins instead of paper

  1. Great ideas and tips! Recycling helps us to cut expenses! But we shouldn’t do it, just because of the material profit. It needs to be turned into a habit we include in our daily responsibilities!
