Our family has been working on little changes that we can do to make our environment better.
My boys and I even took a local landfill tour ….(yes they give educational tours) a few years ago and it really impacted us.
It was really mind-blowing to see how much waste is created collectively.
I learned on that tour that our garbage goes straight into the landfill. I had always assumed that it was sorted somewhere before it entered the landfill.
That made me realize that our family could do our part in reducing waste by making some simple changes.
Here are 5 few simple ways that you can reduce landfill waste.
1. Set aside another garbage can or container for items that can be recycled instead
It’s amazing to see how much of our trash can actually be recycled instead of going into a landfill.
2. Repurpose items
Get inspiration from Pinterest or DIY shows.
I love the show Flea Market Flip because the contestants come up with creative ways to repurpose items that are very out of the box.
My husband has also recently gotten into trying to make votives and glasses from old wine and beer bottles.
3. Donate items instead of putting them in the trash
This helps someone in need, gives you a tax write off, and keeps more items out of local landfills.
4. Recycle old batteries and electronics
This helps reduce landfill waste of toxic materials and conserves more natural resources because old products can be used in making new products.
5. Purchase items made from recycled products
I found the new EcoAdvanced battery line during a recent visit to Walmart.
This is the first battery on the market to use recycled batteries/ material and is Energizer’s longest lasting alkaline ever.
This product comes in AA and AAA batteries and is another way that you can help the environment withholds up to 12 years in storage.
These simple changes can make a big impact over on our environment. You can find out more at bringinginnovation.net.
