Tips on How to Recycle Better
Here are our top tips on making recycling and a more sustainable lifestyle a part of your daily routine.
Tip 1: Just Say No
Sometimes the best thing we can do is to avoid single-use items as much as possible. These items include plastic bottles, straws, bags, and cutlery. Instead, choose reusable and eco-friendly alternatives, or bring your own!
Tip 2: Create a Sorting System
To help encourage yourself to recycle more, make it easy by creating a sorting system within your house, and work as you go! Have a different spot for different materials, like paper, plastic, metal, and glass (unless your city has single-stream recycling). Remove all lids as you go, as they're usually a different material (such as a glass jar with a lid made of metal).
Tip 3: Research and Learn
If you doubt that something can be recycled, think again! More items than you think can be recycled, so before you resort to the trash, dig a little deeper. And while you're at it, learn about the impacts of recycling. By recognizing the positive changes, you'll stay motivated and focused on taking the time and making an effort for change.
