I love the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. They are such an easy way to teach my kids how to be kind to Mama Earth. Recently, while perusing the Internet for new ways to make my office and home even greener, I came across two new “R’s” that I just had to share.
Refuse is all about saying “no” to products and practices that are harmful for our earth. One good example is refusing to use products that contain dangerous chemicals or those that are created using unethical manufacturing products. Another good one (that I’ll admit I’m not always great about remembering,) is avoiding single-use products like disposable plates, juice boxes, razors, shopping bags etc.
How fun is this one? Something that sounds so yucky is actually good for the planet! Rot refers to making the most of your “garbage” by composting, grasscyling, and mulching. Food and garden scraps don’t need to go in the landfill.
Can you think of anymore “R’s” for me to add to my list? I’d love to give Rumi Joon a few more to remember!
With love and many more R’s!
