if you recycle do you feel bad about not using some of it again yourself, at least one time?

I don't ''purpose'' my recycling. Sometimes if I remember to keep out a large jar,(with a lid), it will purpose for grease.

I re use foil mostly. Even plastic utensils are used a lot here. over. and. over.

  • I save and keep too much. It only makes me feel good to actually be rid of something.

  • I keep and reuse what I need... recycle everything else... You can store only so much
    b4 it over whelms you... keep what you know you will use again and recycle the rest...

  • We concentrate on reduction first- less buying and less consumption. Next reusing- I do reuse jars and plastic containers. Lastly recycle-

  • I buy products with the most minimal packaging possible, so we don't often have much leftover for reuse, but for those things I do get and have a use for, I will keep them. I won't keep stuff, though, if I don't already have in mind a purpose for it, because I just don't have the room to store a whole bunch of stuff, so those things I don't have a purpose for go straight into the recycling bins. I can honestly say that we put out the least amount of trash of any of our neighbors, even the single lady who lives in the apartment beneath us.

  • I don't buy a lot of disposables, but when it comes to things like foil or storage bags, my familys health is more important.
