Luckily, they offer a few suggestions that serve as helpful hints.
Here are a few other things you can do to be proactive with your recycling efforts and help minimize waste, helping to swing the pendulum the other way (if you, like me, is a tad bummed out after watching):
- Keep bringing your reusable bags with you to the store--or refuse them if you are only purchasing one or two items.
- Drop your wire hangers back off at the dry cleaner so they can reuse them.
- Go plogging or plalking while you are out in the world, getting some fresh air and exercise.
- Get some stainless steel or paper straws--or just say "no thanks" when you are offered them. I think I might look into portable, collapsible ones like the Final Straw!
- Save those gift bags and reuse them when giving gifts, or get creative with material and other reusable covering.
