Simple Living: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Guest post by Amanda Rootsey.
Yeah yeah yeah, we’ve all heard about recycling before. Boring. But did you know that there is sooo much you can do before you make the choice to put your rubbish in the recycle bin? Did you know that it takes a lot of energy to actually turn your rubbish in to something new?
I had never really thought about this before. I would just give myself a pat on the back if I remembered to put something in the recycling bin! And I had certainly never really thought about the ‘reduce’ and the ‘reuse’ part of the saying before. But today I want to share with you some ways that you can reduce your consumption (and save money – woohoo!) and reuse things around the home. Check out this video and check out my Reduce Reuse Recycle Pinterest Board for lots of ideas!
