Waste reduction is the most important of the "3 R's" (reduce, reuse, recycle). This is true because anything that can be considered waste must first have been made, and to produce and make anything inherently involves production of more waste. Through the reduction of the amount of waste generated we can reduce our environmental footprint on earth; by reducing the amount of waste you generate in your day to day life you are also helping save and preserve our natural resources. Waste reduction can also save you money; the less waste you produce the less you have to pay to dispose of. Here are some waste reduction tips for your everyday life, holiday seasons, and for businesses.
