11/01/18 - Reduction for the Holidays: Reusable Bags & Cups

Posted on September 4, 2020 at 12:27 PM by Jacob Smith

Artistic rendering of the shape of a coffee cup using colored dots of varied sizeAs we move into the holiday season, we ask that we all take some time to reflect on excesses of the holidays and find ways to reduce.

We are not suggesting that reduction be austere or to skimp on your seasonal giving. But look to small ways to make a difference.

Examples

For example, if you are out shopping on Black Friday, bring your own reusable bag for purchases. As you leave a store, place the items you just purchased into your vehicle's trunk and then reuse that bag at the next store.

Another way to reduce at the holiday seasons, especially when you are out shopping, bring your own refillable cup to coffee shops. Many stores (i.e. Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, etc.) will allow you to use your own cup for purchasing a drink. Often, they provide a discount for this as well.

Suggestions

ReWorks' message has been Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. If you have suggestions on reduction ideas that you would like to share with us, please email us. We'll share your ideas in our next newsletter.
