I think a better way to reuse and repurpose is to take all your water bottles and save them for a extra bottle you can reuse and you dont need to buy,also you can take your papers and use the back front and scraps for use,finally take all your plastics,cardboard,and foil and put it in a non unhealthy enviorment and keep it just in case you need to reuse it so you dont waist money or harm the enviorment

Our current culture, at least in the United States, has been focused around recycling especially in the last decade, which is a great thing. As consumers we need to realize that there is a limited supplies of resources on our planet and we need to do our best to conserve them for future generations. However when we think about recycling we probably don’t realize that it takes energy to turn one product into another. And that is where reusable energy comes in. If we can find a way to reuse our “waste” while also using energy that isn’t depleting any source, we would have a very good balance in our world.
You could use water bottles over again by filling them up with water or another beverage after you already drank the water in it. Then you could also use them for art projects if you like making art. You could also reuse paper that you by writing on the side without any writing on it though that won’t extend it’s “life” that long but extends it none the less.
Hi, my name is Lanvy, and I am from the U.S.A. Everyone says things like “Don’t throw that soda can away, recycle instead.” Never in my life have I heard of someone saying, “Reuse it for something else.” When I was little, there were only two options for things that I have already used, recycle or throw it away. As I have grown older, I noticed that a trend trending today are Do-It-Yourselfs. There are so many ideas on websites like Pinterest or pictures on Social Media. For example, one thing that many people seem to throw away after use are plastic bags from the grocery store. My family saves them for other uses such as using them as lunch bags. They are just as reliable as paper bags.
cute video I found on the 3 R’s! I remeber learning this song when I was young and learning about recycling for the first time! But really it doesn’t matter how much you know about recycling but the fact that you want to make a difference in our world. Also I feel the more people you try to influence to recycle the better outcome we will get! so get out, be green and reduce, reuse, recycle!!
Today in French classs my teacher was talking to us about recycling. He told us a story about how one of his students put some food in the recycling bin and because of this we would not be able to recycle anything but instead just throw it away. I learned a lot fromhis story because I realised that food and water can not be recycled! Not only can they not be recycled but if you put it in the recycling bin everything must be thrown away! So next time when you want to recycle, I urge you to think, is this recycable?
Hi, I am Sakura from Houston, Texas. Houston isn’t known as a city that big on recycling(though we’re “big” on everything else), and I have lived here almost all of my life. So, when I went to a skating camp in Canada and had to live in a dorm, it was a whole different lifestyle. The biggest change between living in the States and living in Canada was that Canada was definately alot greener than the US. It was actually extremely embarrassing when I stood in line at the grocery store in Canada with my pounds and pounds of groceries, only to realise that Canada CHARGES for the use of plastic bags at grocery stores. As I looked around me, I realised that EVERYONE around me had brought their own bags to carry their groceries in. Luckily, the cashiers felt extremely bad for me, because I was completely clueless, and let me carry my groceries in a storage box that they no longer needed to use. This was a humiliating moment, but it really made me realise how different Canada is from the US. If America could use the same system and charge for the use of paper or plastic bags, we would be more inclined to REUSE our old plastic bags, or use sturdier bags to bring with us on every shopping trip. If the Canadians can do it, can’t we??
