Sometimes it's hard to be responsible about saving the environment. There are routine things we do everyday that we don't even realize are harmful. But even just a small amount of reduction can go a long way.
Try to reuse disposable items like plastic bags or bottles before recycling them. Reusing is a more efficient way to reduce your impact on the environment than recycling. If you're not able to reuse items like these, make sure you put them in a recycling bin. Always save the trash can as a last resort!
