What to do With the Garbage?
In the farm we have several simple possibilities to contribute to avoid the pollution generated by the garbage:
Reduce: is to avoid the excessive use of packaging, like plastic bags. In grandparents’ time, things were packed in wrappers of banana leaves or in wooden boxes and baskets of cane, wicker, or palm fibers were used more.
Reuse: it is about cleaning the containers of glass, plastic or metal and to use them again. Never use food storage containers that have had chemicals or poisons. A few ways to use toys like a plastic Frisbee can be used as a bird feeder. Old Popsicle sticks can be used for crafts and art projects. Some old milk cartons and plastic containers can be used for storage of small items like beads and small pins and buttons. Foil can be reused for insulation around the home, or as a light reflector. Things like wire hangers can be used for wreathes, holiday decorations, plant hangers and marshmallow holders. Lastly food can be used as a mixture base for compost.
Recycle: we can use old products to make new ones. Plastic containers can be reused by cutting them into containers, seedbeds or containers for storing objects. Fruit crates lined with plastic inside can also be seed beds.
Recover: is to use waste as fuel to heat the chimney or cook. It can be made with newspapers, paper bags, cardboard boxes, fruit compote wood, old and worn furniture.
How to Recycle the Waste Materials
Recycling should be a major part of every individuals and every company’s standard practice. Without the action of recycling there will not be enough natural resources left on this planet. Recycling waste material is a great opportunity to reuse waste to create new things. Waste can be turned into usable products.
