Reduce & Reuse to Help the Environment

ReuseAlthough our business is cleaning up trash; we at AAHLRSA also hope to educate and inspire others to make small changes to improve our environment.

The average American generates 3.5 pounds of trash every day – that’s a lot of trash. The most effective way to reduce waste is to not create it in the first place. Making a new product requires a lot of materials and energy: raw materials must be extracted from the earth, and the product must be produced and transported to where it will be sold. As a result, reduction and reuse are the most effective ways you can save natural resources, protect the environment, and save money.

Ideas on How to Reduce & Reuse:

  1. Buy used. You can find everything from clothes to building materials at specialized reuse centers and consignment shops.
  2. Look for products that use less packaging.
  3. Buy reusable over disposable items. Look for items that can be reused; the little things can add up. For example, you can bring your own silverware and cup to work, rather than using disposable items.
  4. Borrow, rent, or share items that are used infrequently, like party decorations, tools, or furniture.
  5. Donate. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Instead of discarding unwanted appliances, tools, or clothes, try selling or donating them.

If we all take minor steps every day to decrease the amount of waste we produce, we can help the environment for years to come.
