Use reusable containers & food service ware

Use reusable containers for food storage instead of wrapping with aluminum or plastic wrap.  Provide reusable service ware and utensils instead of single-use plastic or paper products at your next gathering to reduce waste.

Share magazines and newspapers

Share magazines and newspapers with friends or donate your already read ones to hospitals, doctors offices, or community places. Here in Hawaii: The library accepts used magazines in good condition. Ask you local school, after school program, preschool or daycare if they need magazines for art projects. They often appreciate the donation.

Donate useful items

Give away things you no longer need or want, or donate to a charitable organization or thrift store. Don’t throw away good items that are still usable.
