We know the 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. But do you live by a 4th R? That’s Refuse. Recycling is important, but so is refusing to allow unwanted items in your life to begin with. Refuse that bag at the grocery store. Refuse the straw that automatically comes with a drink. Refuse a free gift with purchase or free sample you really don’t want. By refusing to accept unwanted things, you can help reduce the amount of waste created on a daily basis.
