Reduce, reuse, recycle.
These familiar “R’s” for being a mindful earthling are in the correct order.
Reduce: Even after spring cleaning and downsizing, it feels as though there is still way too much stuff in our lives. Randomly, without thinking, we collect things for no reason and the things accumulate and take up space long after they have been thrown away. @kiss_the_earth_amber has some great thoughts on yet another “R” which belongs in this discussion.
Reuse: It’s too easy to get new stuff. Something breaks? “Buy a new one” comes before “fix it” to most of us. We live in a culture of convenience and constant upgrades. It’s so rewarding to fix things and save on the expense, space, and reliance on new purchases (“reduce” makes this less of a problem).
Recycle: This is the last resort. Not a better habit - recycling marks the end of our ability to continue to use a thing.
I might know this - but, I’m still working on it...
Life on the road has lead to long days and the lean into the comfort of convenience. So, for this challenge, I’ll try to get more creative with fully using the convenience items I currently have - just to see if I can throw away and recycle a little bit less. I’ll take a more creativity look to the responsibility I accepted by bringing these things into my life.
