When looking to be green, it helps to remember the 4 R’s (and an S!)
Consolidate; make less of, or use less of.
Use the same item over again.
Break down an item to an earlier condition or form, or to its basic components or elements, so that it can be reprocessed into the same (or a different) item.
The often-overlooked 4th-R. Use an item again, but in a different way than originally used (or intended to be used).
using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged, or a lifestyle involving the use of sustainable methods
