Reuse & Repurpose

It's very tempting to throw things away or even drop them in a recycling bin when we are done with them. Is there a better way?

Reuse and Repurpose


One way to reduce carbon emissions is to recycle nonrenewable resources. When people don't recycle used materials, new virgin materials have to be extracted, requiring energy consumption. Energy consumption leads to the release of greenhouse gasses, including carbon, into the atmosphere where they create a rise in global temperatures. But, recycling is a simple yet effective step to prevent carbon emissions. For example, according to stopwaste.org, recycling paper reduces 4.3 tons of carbon dioxide from the amount of materials and energy put into producing 1 ton of office paper. Overall, recycling materials reduces greenhouse gas emissions, improving the health of the planet.
