The Three R's
 Many items, such as water bottles and cardboard boxes, can be reused. It's even better if you are able to use reusable materials, such as mugs instead of paper cups. Reuse before you recycle.
The first step is to reduce the amount of materials we generate in the first place. Use and purchase items only if necessary. Reduce before you have to reuse.
Recycle materials within your residence or work. If you are unable to reduce the amount you purchase or reuse the material, the final step is to recycle. Recycle before you trash.
