If we can avoid making garbage in the first place, we don't have to worry about disposing of it as waste or recycling it later.
The first step towards reducing is becoming aware of the activities you do that create garbage. Can any of these activities be adjusted to reduce or eliminate garbage? Start with small changes such as bringing reusable bags to the store or choosing bulk instead of individually wrapped items. Eventually, these changes will become habit and you can try another small change.
There are many ways for you to reduce waste, save yourself some time and money and be good to the Environment at the same time.
