3R PRACTICES IN YOUR HOME

By practicing 3R (reducing, reusing and recycling), we can avoid wasting resources in the world. Losing resources is ultimately called "limited resources".

For example, the amount of oil is limited where we can make plastic and aluminum ore for making cans. By practicing 3R we can save on finite resources in the future as well as reduce the amount of wastage with the next tips.

 

REDUCE

Just buy what's needed:

Reduce unnecessary purchases.

Do not buy rare items.

Buy local produce.

Buy reusable products:

Buy items in bottles (glass) and rechargeable batteries.

Purchase a versatile cleaner: This reduces the purchase of different types of detergents for every use.

Buy less packaged items: Less packs will reduce the dumped waste.

Support paper wraps.

Sell ​​or donate unused goods (in good condition):

Do not store, remove or burn unused items.

Buy non-toxic products: Most toxic products such as engine oils, polishes, paints and insecticides can not be reused. Spray the toxic ingredients before removing the container.

Use alternate substances to replace hazardous / toxic substances: Washing using vinegar mixed vinegar and olive oil with lemon is a good furniture polisher.

 

REUSE

Reusable bags for shopping and storing items at home.

The envelope can be reused by affixing a new address above the old address. It can also be used as scrap paper.

Containers can be used to store stuff at home.

Paper and cardboard can be used to store and store goods at home. Paper that has been used can be used as a scrap paper. Do not forget to recycle if it can not be used again.

The old clothes can be cushioned, tablecloths or cloths.

Old wood can be used as a handicraft material. Do not burn these woods. Open burning is illegal.

Old tires can be provided to tire stores for recycling.

 

RECYCLE

Recycling at home:

Always look at recyclable items. Separate these ingredients by type. Use recycle bins to remove recyclable materials.

Try to find ways to recycle any materials such as paper, plastic, loam and glass. Other materials such as furniture, electronics, construction materials and vehicles can also be recycled.

Buy products that use recyclables.

 

Recycling on your site:

Recycling groceries and planting trees can improve your site.

Mompompos, the decaying process of decayable materials, can be reused as fertilizer on the site. It is the best way to reduce the waste of the kitchen.

Recycling grass is a simple way to restore nutrients to the soil when this cut grass is left decay.

 

Recycling in a community:

Recycling centers: provide space and facilities for a community to send materials for recycling.

School and business: can play an important role. Both can be references and provide awareness of recycling.

Community projects: conduct activities to improve and enhance recycling activities.
