Donate & Reuse
The phrase "Reduce Reuse Recycle" is an ordered list of how one should view product consumption. We should be looking for ways to reduce single-use items or looking to reuse them. Then we recycle if we can't do either of the other two. Below is a list of options to donate, give away, or sell items so others can reuse what you no longer need or want.
