Reuse, Reduce, Repurpose


When experts told us that global warming was happening I didn’t really understand the full meaning behind it. The ramifications of waste and misuse of products in our country is evidently leading us to drastic climate changes, pollution, and landfills inundated with waste.

The thing about not being wasteful is to use less. That’s pretty common sense but in a country raised on convenience, we’ve all fallen into the trap of getting something quick just because it’s convenient. One of these pitfalls is water bottles. They are easy and convenient and fairly inexpensive. But they do eventually add up in cost and plastic waste and becomes harder to break down.

As a People Towels (Peope4People) Ambassador, I was keenly asked, “why do you use reusables?” Simple answer is – to help reduce the waste of plastic production and use in the US. And I do this by using reusable beverage containers. I have a bottle for my water and a container for my hot tea. I even bought my husband and son their own reusable water bottles to take to work and school. When given nice-looking and highly functional ones, they both use them regularly.

It wasn’t always easy to use reusable beverage bottles because of constantly having to wash them but once I started using them it became second nature to me. Now I just wash them out the night before to get them ready for the next use. I may not always remember to use less plastic or conserve water or any of the environmentally sound actions, but I do try to have the best intentions when it comes to wanting to help improve out planet. All it takes is one step in helping combat global warming and for me it is using reusable beverage containers. It really is a win-win situation for the both of us.
