National Recycling Day: 4 Things You Can Do to Jump-start Your Recycling Journey

Did you know that every American sends 64 tons of waste to the landfill during the course of their lifetime? With over 329 million people in the United States, think about the amount of waste that’s being generated annually in the country. If we won’t try to increase our recycling efforts and reduce our waste, it may only be a matter of time before we face an environmental crisis.

With the observance of National Recycling Day on November 15, every man, woman, and child in America is encouraged to address the issue of our mounting garbage problem by committing to recycling much of their waste until a zero-waste America becomes a reality. If you want to protect future generations from environmental problems, then join the movement to increase people’s awareness about this issue on National Recycling Day.

Top 4 Things You Can Do to Jump-start Your Recycling Journey

Recycling is one effective way of protecting our planet from the negative effects of pollution. The good thing about this is that you can easily practice it at home. Here are the top four things you can do to jump-start your recycling journey.

  1. Remember the 3 R’s.

Although most of us have heard the words “Reduce, recycle, reuse” since we were kids, now is the critical time to implement the actions pointed out in that slogan. The first step to take is to reduce the number of materials you use. Once you achieve that, you can move on to checking your things and segregating those that can be repurposed or reused. If you consistently follow this method, it will only be a matter of time before you see the benefits of recycling.

  1. Reuse your water.

Instead of letting your used water go down the drain, you can easily collect it in another container and use it to water your plants. Moreover, if you’re a homeowner, you can also opt to modify your plumbing system so that the bathwater or dishwashing water is filtered out and recycled.

  1. Switch to reusable materials.

Imagine how much garbage you contribute by constantly throwing away cups and plastic bags. However, if you switch to reusable bags instead of paper or plastic bags for your groceries, you can help reduce the amount of waste that you dump each year. Aside from that, you can also opt to use tumblers instead of styro cups for your morning coffee.

  1. Start composting.

You can also make good use of your food waste. By creating a compost pit, you can dump your food waste in there and create an organic matter, which can boost the growth of your plants.
