5 Zero Waste New Year’s Resolutions

In 2014 resolve to give back to your community, ecosystem and even your business!

Rethink

RETHINK: Be creative – everything is a valuable resource and can be re-marketed, re-made, or restored.

Reuse

REUSE: Don’t’ through away gift bags save them to be used again. Use paper bags as wrapping paper or why not use reusable shopping bags as gift bags.

Repair

REPAIR: Support the environment and your local small business by repairing shoes, vacuum cleaners, computers, printers etc.

Reduce

REDUCE: Throughout the year reduce the amount of “purchased stuff” you give to others – instead give your time -volunteer with family, spend a day with nieces and nephews, plan a sunset dinner at the beach or park.

Re_love

RELOVE: Reach out to someone and show them you care! Take something -maybe that coat in the back of the closet that has been forgotten – and share it with someone new!
