When you donate your cast-offs as a
result of organizing, you get a clear &
clutter-free home, charities get much
needed items, and the planet gets to
keep landfill to a minimum. Everyone
wins!
Reusing product packaging to contain
something is a great way to
repurpose
items you already have
.

Some of my favorites are:

  • Tiffany-blue gift boxes
  • Plastic take-out containers
  • Kraft parmesan cheese containers
  • Metal Altoid tins
  • Soft drink fridge pack boxes
Cardboard boxes made with recycled
content and c
anvas covered boxes are
good alternatives to the standard plastic
bin.
Metal and mesh containers can also
take the place of plastic bins for storing
items.
Bamboo is a renewable wood and
many
stylish containers are being made
out of this material.  
Carry a reusable mug or water
bottle
with you everywhere - it’s an
eco-friendly habit to get in to. You’ll
save money in the long run, keep
items out of the landfill
, and feel
better about reusing something
instead of always wasting.
Replace a disposable item with   a
reusable one:

  • Use cloth hand towels
    instead of paper towels
  • Replace paper napkins with
    cloth restaurant-style napkins
  • Use cloth shopping bags
Ways to Reduce Junk Mail:

  • Go electronic / paperless
  • Opt-out at
    www.dmaconsumers.org
  • Stop credit card offers @ 888-5-
    OPTOUT
  • Cancel catalogs @
    www.catalogchoice.org
  • Subscribe to online magazines &
    ezines
