We’re enjoying the beginning of Spring, getting ready for Summer and planning ways to mark Earth Day 2021. Here’s a few ideas if you want some inspiration.

California’s Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) brings together the state’s recycling and waste management programs and continues a tradition of environmental stewardship. Here’s what they recommend if you’re looking for options to help the environment on Earth Day and every day.

Cut Your Trash Footprint

Imagine ways to slash your trash each day. Save trees, water, and energy while decreasing climate pollution. Reuse bags at the store. Plan meals so you only buy what you will eat.

Reusables, Not Disposables

Single-use disposable products are filling our oceans and piling up in our landfills at an alarming rate. Swap them out for products you can repurpose or reuse. Slash your trash footprint and reduce climate pollution with reusable towels, water bottles, bags, napkins, and more.
