It's Reduce, Reuse, THEN Recycle. The order is functional. 


Segment 1: Reduce & Reuse

  • Think blister packaging and food delivery containers. 

  • Put plastic last except maybe for grocery bags which are very easy to reuse as, say, trash liners that have less plastic than marketed trash liners. 

  • Get creative for reusing 


Segment 2: Recycling-What to do


  • Not nearly as effective as we are lead to believe. 

  • Figure out what local options are. Not just processing, actual recycling. Do those.  

    • Remember to rinse items

  • Discuss ​“new” ideas: going back to the milkman set up. 

Segment 3: A little background on plastics and recycling conundrum
