Recycling is a great way to be environmentally friendly and get rid of waste in a manner that is responsible. Here are a few tips on how to improve your recycling.

Reduce, reuse, recycle – Reducing some items that need recycling is a good way to reduce your recycling load. Start by carrying a reusable glass or plastic water bottle, carry reusable bags to the supermarket, use reusable diapers and buy more products packaged in paper rather than plastic or glass. Another good way to reuse your recyclables is to repurpose them. For example, if you have empty glass jars, use them in the kitchen to store your spices and condiments.

Know what you can and can’t recycle – Make sure that you are well aware of the recycling rules in your area and that you follow these guidelines when recycling. Know what products can be recycled and avoid buying products that say that they are recycled but those that cause more harm from the recycling process.

Buy recycled – The recycling movement will only work if consumers choose recycled items over virgin Therefore, feed the loop by choosing recycled and supporting recycled products.

Encourage an artist – If you know of an artist that uses recycled materials, provide them with items that they can use in their next art project. If you have a child who gets involved in art projects, look at encouraging them to use recycled materials instead of new.
