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.
