How can I recycle more on a daily basis?
The best thing you can do to recycle more is not to waste. It’s much better for the environment to reduce the amount of what you buy, reuse what you have, and finally to recycle. Check the RecycleTogetherRI website to ensure you’re including as many recyclable materials as possible in your recycling bin. Be sure to bring your plastic bags back to a retail store that accepts them. Use a refillable water bottle rather than those plastic bottles that waste energy and natural resources. Always think before you buy. Don’t buy products with excessive packaging.
