RECYCLE! these items and help design a REUSE! symbol!

There are things you should always recycle. (From various sources).

Plastic/Plastic Bags

Aluminum

Glass

Paper

Electronics/Rechargeable batteries

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs 

Of course there is more but keeping these kinds of items on a permanent list should help. Google them to find out more about what it means to recycle them and how.


The next thing is REUSE!

Anything you don't need that could be of great value to others — for instance, you can donate your used prescription glasses to the nonprofit OneSight at any LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sunglass Hut, Target Optical, or Sears Optical location (or go to One Sight for more locations near you). You can also donate unused, unexpired medications including antibiotics, pain relievers, and others by mailing them to the Health Equity Project. The glasses and medications will be distributed to people in need in developing countries.

There is a competition on a new design for Reuse! Go to  Earth 911.com  and vote on your favorite design. I did!
