Make a shopping list so you know what you are buying before you go out – this is good to avoid "impulse buying". Before buying the latest product, ask yourself if it is really something you need. Choose products that use the simplest packaging. And products that you can use for a long time are always better than disposable ones.
Do you have any younger friends that you could give your outgrown clothes, desks, etc. to? And recycling wrapping paper into envelopes and book covers can be fun, too!
Following the proper rules for separating recyclables when you are throwing away garbage!
