Reusing Protects Nature

Since everything originally comes from nature, we can protect nature by reusing things! Just think about all the stuff you use—especially throwaway or disposable items—and ask yourself if there's something else you can use instead. For example, during meals, most of us use napkins. While disposable paper napkins are very convenient to use, they are made from trees that once stood in forests. If we want to protect the forest—which is home to animals we care about—we can help by using less paper napkins, and using napkins made from cloth instead. Rather than throwing the cloth napkins away, wash them when they're dirty and reuse them. By reusing every day items, we can do a lot to help protect nature and reduce our use of natural resources!
