Be a Detective

Many people like the idea of reusing but they often don't know where to begin. Be a detective and identify all the things you use that are usually thrown away. Make a list of these items and figure out ways you can switch them for something else that can be reused.

Some hints to get you started:

Instead of Using Use This
Paper Cups Reusable Cups
Paper Towels Cloth Towels, Sponges and Rags
Paper Napkins Cloth Napkins
Plastic Bottles Bottles made from Metal or Glass
Grocery Bags Reusable Cloth Bags
Writing Paper Reuse Other Side
Sandwich Bags Reusable Containers
