Reduce Garbage Refuse

Take a few minutes to cut rags and handkerchiefs from old tee shirts or cotton towels. It’s a great way to avoid using paper towels. (Thanks for the tip, Linda!)

Think Before You Buy

Between TV and the internet most Americans are subjected to hundreds of advertisements a day! Before you buy, ask yourself if the item is a need or a want. Then ask what you would use if you didn’t have it. Think about where you would store it and how you would dispose of it. In order of effectiveness, Refuse comes before Recycle and definitely before Trash.

Reuse Prescription Bottles

Check with your vet, humane shelter, or pharmacy. Many are happy to reuse clean prescription bottles, which are not accepted for recycling in most places. If you need to remove the labels, use Goo Gone to get rid of the stickiness.

The fact that there’s a highway to hell and only a stairway to heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers.
