Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot

Preventing waste doesn't have to be complicated. It starts with simple changes in daily habits—like making grocery shopping lists so you buy just what you need to avoid wasting food. Or stashing reusable shopping bags next to your door or in your car. Reducing and reusing keeps money in your pocket and can do a lot of good for our communities and the environment.
