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.

This week’s tip comes from Ella in Manhattan:

“As I was clearing out the takeout napkins from my daily commuter bag, I thought of the World Is Your Dumpster and wanted to pass this on to help our community save money while reducing trash. When you grab a quick slice from your favorite NYC pizzeria, ice cream shop, a sandwich from your local bodega, whatever–do you end up throwing away more unused napkins than used ones?

Why waste perfectly good napkins? I just throw them in my backpack, or fold them into my pocket to use later. They always end up having a purpose, either for me or someone else (I shared some with a woman on the subway, yesterday).

Whatever makes it back to my apartment goes into a kitchen drawer and we use them for casual dinners.

Why be fancy, when you can be thrifty and earth-friendly?!”

Remember, a small action can have a BIG impact.

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.
