What if people REALLY are SO lazy that they cannot be “inconvenienced” to do something to help THEIR environment?  What if people think it’s truly THAT difficult to institute small changes in their daily behaviors in order to make a big difference?  This is what inspired us to start writing “Tips for How To Create Less Trash Tuesday.”

Each Tuesday, someone from the World Is Your Dumpster movement will share a new, simple tip that they implement in their daily lives in order to create less waste.

For the last five years, I have given up wrapping gifts with wrapping paper and instead using old newspapers.  Not only does this save a bunch of money during an already expensive holiday, but it also re-purposes one-time-use items and creates less waste.  The beauty of this, is that everyone I give the presents to, think the wrapping paper is cool, especially if they’re from another city, state, or country.  I have also been creative and cut out certain letters, from various headlines, and made a personalized message for each recipient.

Do you have a great idea of how to reduce, reuse, recycle and create less trash?  Submit it to The World Is Your Dumpster and help us create a less wasteful world.
