I do not consider myself to be a wasteful person. However, I'm realizing more and more how I can be even better at wasting less. Here are some examples of what I'm thinking of:
~ Don't finish all the water in a glass? I'm saving it in my watering can for the next time I go around and water plants instead of dumping it out.
~ Get junk mail from the same place regularly or something you never read? I bought some pre-stamped postcards that I can just address to the company and ask to be removed from their mailing list. I figure it is wasteful to just throw all this mail away when I could prevent them from sending it.
~ Finished a box of cereal? My Mom taught me this: Carefully unfold the waxed paper from inside, wash and re-use.
~ Wash out ziplocs and re-use. I've even been known to wash out tortilla bags since they are zip top bags.
These are just the ones I've been thinking of lately. I want to be a good steward of what God has given me. Any other ideas I should think about enforcing?
