We can remember our Three R's! Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle! We can reduce our waste by turning the faucet off and not allowing water to run. We can reuse items such as an old t-shirt as a cleaning cloth. We can recycle paper, cans, plastic, and metal in order to make sure those items do not end up in a landfill.
