Reuse Before Recycle – Small Bumper Sticker
Reuse Before Recycle
There are a lot of recycle
stickers out there, but this one speaks to a truth that many people
forget: reuse is the highest form of recycling. Unlike recycling, reusing
an object instead of buying a new one actually cuts down on the amount
of disposable products being produced. It also cuts down on the amount
of energy necessary to recycle those objects when theyre past the
point of reuse.
If we can reuse the cardboard
boxes, bags, bottles and other items in our lives even one time,
we can save another one from having to be produced. Canvas grocery bags
have become a great example of this philosophy. Reusing these
canvas bags over and over again keeps millions of plastic bags out of
landfills, helping to fulfill the environmental injunction to Reduce,
This is a recycle sticker that
speaks to the whole picture of human consumption, and the consciousness
required to shift our garbage footprint as a society. The more
items we can reuse before recycling them, the better off we all will
Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided
For strip-mined mountain’s majesty above the asphalt plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.
We shall require a substantially new
manner of thinking if mankind is to survive. ~Albert Einstein
For the first time in the history of
the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous
chemicals, from the moment of conception until death. ~Rachel Carson,
Silent Spring, 1962
We believe Americans need to do a serious check when it comes to consumption patterns, particularly that of petroleum, high fructose corn syrup, open space, and cheap, plastic shit from Wal-Mart that ends up in the landfill in less than a year.
