How is your Sustainable Living Journey going so far in 2017?! I know we are only one month in, but every little bit helps.
Our next idea is an old classic: recycling.
Recycle more often. The benefits of recycling on the environment are incredible, and recycling is very easy to do.
Save energy-manufacturers don't have to produce new goods from raw materials and create more pollution
Paper recycling saves millions of trees every year
Recycling helps save the climate-reusing materials instead of creating new ones produces much less carbon waste
Un-recycled glass can take up to one million years to decompose!
Reusing glass also helps reduce water and air pollution drastically
Reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and combustion facilities
Also try to buy recycled products whenever possible, such as for packaging, containers, building materials, gifts, etc.
