The 90-Day Plan: DAY 4


REDUCE, REUSE, and then RECYCLE. The order of these steps really does
matter for conservation efforts to be most effective, so don't waste
in the first place. Although recycling is much better than throwing
something away, the process still requires a great deal of energy to
transport and sort materials. This is also poses economic question:
does a buyer exist for recycled goods? Reduce the amount of products
you use first, reuse them second, and then recycle third.

Challenge: How far away is your recycling center and landfill? What
additional recycling services does your municipality offer? Can you
obtain a large container instead of a small bin and make an attempt to
recycle more items than you throw away?
