Refuse: Say no to products that damage the environment. Refuse to print invoices if you could send them digitally. Every time you think about purchasing something new, give yourself a day to think, “Will I be using this item for a long time? If not, is it worth buying it?”
Reduce: Instead of writing down things on paper, reduce paper usage and type things out on your laptop or phone. Buy items you need in bulk to reduce the number of trips to the grocery store. The fewer items you demand, the less strain on the environment.
Reuse: Instead of using disposable items, carry a mug for your coffee, pack your lunch in a reusable lunch box and reuse papers lying around in the house.
Repurpose: Instead of buying new furniture, you could change things around your home office to give it a unique look. Here are some creative ways to get started. Eliminate the use of single-use plastic bags, make sure you repurpose reusable plastic bags, and never throw that bag away.
Recycle: Instead of throwing away things, recycle or donate them. Recycling is not just for garbage, paper, and bottles.
