Purchase durable, recycled and recyclable products when available
The three R’s of recycling are Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Buying durable products is an important part of Reuse. Buying recycled products helps close the loop on recycling. Recycling means not just putting your recyclables in the right bin, but buying items made from recycled materials.
Look for recovered or re-built furniture, durable binders, refillable mechanical pencils, refilled printer cartridges, rechargeable batteries, etc.
