There are many ways you can re-think waste by upcycling, repairing, selling, donating, or swapping your unwanted stuff. For many people and organizations, one person’s “trash” is another’s treasure!
Reusing and donating items extends the life of useful products. When you buy something used, you conserve the materials, energy, and water it would have taken to produce, package, and transport a similar new product. When you donate items you no longer need, you not only keep them out of the landfill, but you also provide an opportunity for someone else to avoid buying it new.
