The 3 R’s & How Easy They Are To Do!

The 3 R’s -Reduce, Reuse, Recycle ♻️

It’s awesome to know that there’s so many people in the world 🌎 who are going green! Being eco friendly has become easier to do and practice in homes. Achieving the “3 R’s” is no longer looked at as burden. I try to recycle and reuse most things in my house in order to reduce my carbon footprint. So far , so good, too!

How Easy Is It To Do The “3 R’s” ?

The 3 R’s are commonly known as Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. What are they, you ask? Well they represent this:

“The 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. The 3 R’s – reduce, reuse and recycle – all help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away. They conserve natural resources, landfill space and energy. Plus, the three R’s save land and money communities must use to dispose of waste in landfills.”

There are many ways to practice the 3 R’s, and  some of the steps are as simple as using a BPA free bottle instead of using disposable water bottles. Believe me, it saves stress on the earth as well as keeps things out of our landfills. Sometimes, though, we can’t help but use disposable plastics. Case in point… single bottles of juice. There’s a remedy for that, if you’re willing to try it.

One way I keep my juice bottle usage down is by making my own juices. I keep the empty juice bottle I bought and reuse it, make a trip to the Farmers Market or to the grocery store and stock up on all the fruit and vegetables that I like. And then, I transform them into juice with my trusty Juiceman juicing machine. After the juice is made, it’s poured into the cleaned juice bottle and store in the fridge until I want juice. I enjoy having juice on hand that I know is organic and free from preservatives, plus it gives me a chance to experiment with new juice combinations. Yesterday I made a grapefruit, orange, and apple juice… it was fantastic! Try your hand at making juice and using reusable bottles. It’s helps the earth and keeps money in your pocket!!
