DAILY ACTIONS

Waste

Reduce Single-Use Disposables

Historically, marginalized and low-income communities live closer to landfills, contributing to a multitude of health problems. I will find out how I can limit single-use items and do my best to limit the waste I generate.

Recycle Everything I Can

Contamination prevents what is recyclable from being recycled. I will spend 60 minutes researching and recycling all materials that are accepted by local haulers or drop stations in my community.

  • Reflection Question
    Waste Reduce Single-Use Disposables
    Bringing your own bags and containers to the grocery store, and even to restaurants for leftovers, are a couple of ways to reduce your waste. What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    Take out containers and vegetable bags are the next items I want to work on replacing.  I've eliminated plastic bottles, straws and most plastic bags by just keeping extra reusable items in my car so I always have a spare. Finding some smaller bags for veggies and a set of reusable containers for takeout is my next goal :)
