You might have listened several times Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – the three ways to reduce solid waste. You might have been impressed to observe their rhythmic phonic. But you hardly have understood its real spirit because such words have become quite buzzword in our social sector.
If we talk about environment we simply express concerns over rising environmental degradation, if we talk about human rights we just be alarmed over their flagrant violations. When we discuss the wave of terrorism we just start counting the cost of terror all around the world. Instead of going to the root-cause of a malady and do something practical for its eradication we mostly pay lip service to its consequences or look to others for their solution. How apathetic we are getting since we adopt a lavish and luxurious life style after the rapid advancement in our standard of living owing to the galloping development in science and technology.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: What the heck are they?
You might be curious to read what these three killer ways are; here your curiosity ends. These are reduce, reuse and recycle. Are you laughing to read them with the impression oh we already read a lot about them. You are right, you did learn a lot about them but actually these are really killer ways if we literally understand their significance and apply them with their true spirit. Let’s discuss them one by one.
It is the first element of whole phrase of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. It seems very simple but it is actually the litmus test of our environment friendliness. If we follow this tip we have to entirely change our whole life style. Did you ever see in a customer insisting the shopkeeper to stuff as much articles in a small bag as possible. This is called reduce. It aims to use the things as little as possible because we throw them away after their use. Cans, bags, bottles or any such articles we use to carry or store things we must use in minimum number. Its easy example is use of paper. Write down on both the sides of a paper and don’t stop here even write in its margin over the header and footer; means fully use it then throw it away. Understand my dear. This is the basic spirit of the reuse.
How easy it is to say reuse. But we sometimes make it a status symbol to throw away a thing after its use and avoid using it again. Did you ever see a person received a greeting card and reused its envelope by sending back the card to sender in the same envelope by just pasting a name tag over it? Is it very funny? It seems very funny but actually it has a purpose. So make reuse your habit. Whenever and wherever possible reuse the things if they are not harmful to do so.
It sounds so technical and we look to factories which recycle the things. In most of the cases we can do it by ourselves. Keep the leftover rice of overnight and mix it into freshly boiled vegetables and yummy sauces the next day and enjoy a Chinese cuisine. Put some glaze paper around the tin of a cold drink and use it as a pen keeper. Here also you have to apply your creativity to keep recycling going. In this way we can save our environment from garbage pollution as much as we can through these three killer tips. Do your share to care our environment.
