Precycling is about reducing waste by avoiding items that will generate it, selecting certain items that will generate less, and/or acquiring items that can be reused for something else. While recycling is an important action as it allows for significant energy savings, it’s not a get out of jail free card for our waste. Resources are used, energy is consumed and a degree of pollution follows. The 3R’s of going green – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – are in that order for a reason. Precycling is another way to lighten our environmental footprint and also save money. Click here for more info and examples.
