  1. I believe that as a society we focus so much on recycling and refurbishing, but I feel where we really need to make changes before the point of disposal. Making this change isn’t hard, its simply about realizing what can be done to need to recycle less. A good first start is using a reusable water bottle. A second step is to buy items together. Like when buying things online, choose the option to ship together, even if it may add on a day or two. Amazon also sometimes gives an option for reduced waste packaging. If we just work to stop the problem before it starts, many resources can be conserved in the short and long runs.

  2. I do agree that we produce too much waste and the greatest step would be reducing our waste. I think a large contributor to this fact is that we are not taught much about this, soon enough. personally, I learned more about recycling in elementary school than my whole life, and that is the only one of the “3 R’s” that i can remember them teaching us about. So my suggestion would be to start education about reducing, earlier.

  3. This poster is pretty alarming considering we were brought up thinking that recycling was the best way to save the planet. There were posters that looked exactly like this but saying “Recycle” hanging in every hall way in every elementary, middle, and high school. We had programs and assemblies to advocate for recycling and now I come to find out that recycling really doesn’t do much. We could easily change these programs and bring awareness to other ways to help the environment like reducing consumption.
