November's Environmental Quality is Recycle
Eco says: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
Four simple waste reduction initiatives will help you reduce your waste:
Waste Prevention or source reduction, is the design, manufacture, purchase or use of materials and products to reduce the amount and/or toxicity of discarded waste.
Recycling is the collection and use of materials that would otherwise have been discarded as the raw materials in the manufacture of new products.
Composting is a natural process by which food scraps, yard trimmings and other organic materials are collected and allowed to decompose under controlled conditions into a rich, soil-like substance called compost.
Closing the Loop is the purchase of products made from recycled materials and/or designed to result in less waste after their useful life.
