We throw various items in our garbage every day. At the end of the day, they get dumped in landfills. The pile of garbage is growing and if we don’t do something about it, our environment will be affected badly. Here are some of the ways you can reduce your landfill waste.
Donate used things
If you have any clothes or other items that you have used and wish not to use anymore, then donate them instead of throwing them away. There are many charity stores where you can donate them. If you have too many things to donate then you can have a sale at your garage as well.
Don’t waste food
When we have dinner or lunch, we often throw away leftovers in the bin. You should take the amount of food that you will be able to consume. Don’t waste food, else they will end up in landfills. If you have pets, you can give your leftover food to them. If you have untouched some of the food, then you can give them away to the poor people.
Don’t use plastic water bottles
You should stop using plastic water bottles. These bottles cause lots of damage to the environment as they are not fully degradable. Instead, you should start using reusable bottles like glass.
You shouldn’t buy anything for use or consumption more than you need. If you buy things extra you may need to throw them out. So, evaluate your needs first before shopping. You should focus on recycling products so that they don’t get accumulated in landfills and cause pollution.
