More and more people are becoming environmentally conscious nowadays. In fact, the reduce-reuse-recycle concept has been applied in many places, including homes. The numerous benefits of recycling cannot be ignored.
It is a good idea to start recycling right in your own home because not only will you be helping a bigger advocacy, you will also be training your children to be more environmentally conscious as well. Below are some recycling tips you can do in your home.
* Segregate. The first thing you can do is to segregate recyclable trash. Indicate particular containers where you can put paper, glass bottles, plastic bottles, cans, and anything else that you think is recyclable. There is no limit to recycling! Even recycling mobile phones is now being done. For containers, make sure that you clean them out first.
* Do it yourself. Although there are already a lot of recycling centers that can accept your segregated recyclable items, there is no reason why you cannot do the recycling yourself. The next time you would need a container for something, look through the cleaned containers that you have segregated already.
* Use an ecobag. One of the most common practices nowadays is the use of ecobags. Many people refuse plastic and paper bags whenever they shop. Instead, they bring a bag where they put all their shopping finds. Do not limit yourself to using trendy ecobags. There is no reason why you cannot reuse and recycle plastic bags and paper bags from the stores themselves.
