Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

For the first time ever I have seen something somewhere that acknowledges the order of these words. It was on the inside of a wrapper of a chocolate bar and it was urging me to do something else with it rather than throw it away.

“We often forget that ‘reuse’ comes before ‘recycle.’ Before tossing an item in the trash or recycle bin, consider alternative uses. This chocolate bar wrapper, for example, could be used to make gift wrap, an art project or a bookmark. For more information visit

Recycling is good. Reusing is better. Using less is best.
