What You Can Do

The everyday choices we make matter.

Whether at home or work, the right actions DO add up when it comes to things we buy, use and no longer need. When making purchases, it pays to look for quality and durability, so things last longer, or to buy things that are not new, such as clothing. When you're done using it, can it be recycled, reused by someone else, or in the case of food, composted?
