Compost. I use Ramsey county’s organic drop off sites to compost. I have a small bucket in my freezer for wet compost (helps with the smell) and a larger dry compost by my garbage can. All food scraps and paper towels go there. My garbage is so small now it’s practically non existent. Food in the landfills emits greenhouse gases. But in compost it doesn’t. Instead it’s turned into nutrient rich dirt. I find that’s an easy way to take care of the earth.
Buy used clothes instead of new. A lot of resources and energy go into making clothes. I usually find name brand stuff on eBay for cheaper. Opt for eco friendly packaging when ordering online.
Recycle!!! It’s important to educate ourselves on which plastic #s can be recycled, clean them out, and prepare them to be recycled. When possible, buy products that come in glass instead. Your recycle bin should be more full than your garbage bin.
