Minimizing materials used to design, manufacture, purchase, or use a product, can reduce material contributing to the waste stream. For example, you reduce waste by purchasing products with minimal packaging or by using a non-toxic alternative that will do the same job.

Also reduction is about reducing the amount of energy it takes to create and power the item throughout its like.

Reduce is actually the first component in the familiar “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” mantra.  By reducing our use of materials and energy in the first place, we also reduce the need for reuse and recycling.

 

Resource Consumption = Waste Production.

It stands to reason that the more resources we consume, the higher the amount of waste we output. You can increase your positive impact on the environment by practicing conscious consumption and reducing your consumption of products or services related to:
•    Air emissions
•    Energy usage
•    Water
•    Solid waste production

Whoa! We almost lost you didn’t we?  Right now, you are shaking your head and wondering, “Ok.  I’m just one person.  How can I tackle huge issues like air emissions or energy usage? Isn’t that the government’s job?”

It’s everyone’s job.  In our everyday lives we contribute to the production of emissions, energy, water and solid waste.  Once you are aware of your individual use, you can begin to find ways to reduce your use.  This reduction is not only good for the environment, but is also good for your personal bottom line. For example, reducing your use of electricity will result in lower utility bills.

Taking actions aimed at reducing your output alone may not seem like a great feat; however, when combined with the actions of thousands of people, the impact of each individual eco-action is powerful.

In addition, once you as an individual are aware of your personal consumption, you can begin to see ways – and suggest ways - that your company, your church, your volunteer organization, your country club, etc. can cut back too.

Hey! We are all on this earth together.  It’s really one big home for all of us.  If your home were filling up with garbage, poisonous gases, deadly bacteria, and overheating… would you wait for your city council to take action?  Would you wait to see how it all worked out?  No! You have a vested interest in keeping your home safe.  Well, it’s the same for our world.  We need to start with ourselves then expand our new found knowledge out from there. Together, we can and will get our home back into shape.
