Reducing, Reusing and Recycling- Minimizing Waste

The most effective way to reduce waste is to not create it in the first place. Making a new product emits greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change and requires a lot of materials and energy- raw materials must be extracted from the earth, and the product must be fabricated then transported to wherver it will be sold. As a result, reduction and reuse are the most effective ways you can save natural resources, protect the environment, and sae money.

Natural resource extration and processing account for approximately half of global greenhouse gas emissions. How we extract, use, and dispose of these resources can also affect already vulnerable communities disproportionately. (Source: Life Fitness USA)
