We use a rainbarrel for watering our plants and we throw vegetable scraps in our composter for using in soil.  Everything else we recycle.

First, I have 2 Compost sites.  Along with re-cycling, I try to buy things that are made with recycled items. The rugs on my porch are made from plastic water bottles! I also try to re-purpose items.  Most of my "Tupperware" containers were bought with other goods in them.  My dog treat container originally had peanuts, my rice containers originally had Chex Mix in them, and my inside compost scrap bucket originally had dishwasher detergent in it.  I just made a decorative cover for it.  Looks great.

I read local newsprint recycling programs might not really cut down on waste.  Any thoughts

We recycle metal, glass & paper.  Return soda bottles and water bottles for recycling in the store.  Donate clothes to charities and use the largest bottles of detergents to cut down on waste.

I try to keep track of what we have as to not waste it.   We do not waste much in food because we have chickens to feed the scrapes to and a composter for our garden.

   We give our clothes to charities.

Since the 1970s when my father taught me, I've recycled metal cans, glass jars & I think maybe all paper products.

So when I moved out on my own & started my own family in the 1980s I got them into recycling whatever plastic, metal cans, glass jars & paper products that were allowed where I now lived.

I, too, use daylight for reading, etc, by, versus indoor lighting.  And for a couple years now I've been buying fluorescent lights versus incandescent.

Additionally, when I can remember, I use those store-bought fabric bags.

We recycle and use natural light during the day rather than room lights.
