First Reduce, Then Reuse

Reducing the stuff we use is the best way to protect nature. In fact, recycling should be the last thing you consider. First, try to use less. Next, find ways to reuse the stuff you do use. Finally, if you can't do either, see if you can recycle what you've got. For example, we can choose to buy reusable metal water bottles and traditional cameras instead of disposable ones. We can also reuse our wrapping paper again and again. But, if we donít reuse the paper our journal's written on (for obvious reasons!) it should be recycled.
