In honor of Earth Day, here are some tips help the environment. Below is a list of everyday items you might be throwing in the trash. For each of these items, you can reuse, recycle or repurpose them.
1) Repurpose Glass Jars-
Instead, wash them out thoroughly then run the jars through a hot dishwasher cycle to sanitize. Now, you can repurpose those sets of sturdy jars…perfect for dry goods, drinking glasses and storage for leftovers.
2) Reuse Plastic Bags-
Try lining your small trash cans (like bathrooms or bedrooms) with these bags. Use them to hold wet clothes and swimsuits. Many grocery stores also have boxes at the entrance where you can recycle them.

4) Repurpose, Reuse, Recycle Clothes-
