We support recycling, but we firmly believe in the reduction of creating garbage and other waste products. When possible, please think about what you are buying. Do you really need this item? If possible, avoid purchasing bulky items or products that are in huge amounts of wrapping.
Pass magazines, books and catalogs on to neighbors, family members, nursing homes, etc.
Plastic containers can often be reused for storage of food and crafts.
Reuse wrapping paper, plastic bags, and boxes.
Try to repair broken items before replacing them.
