Reduce, reuse, and recycle are the three pillars of sustainable living. Kushal Dev Rathi

It’s necessary to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Making a positive impact on the environment starts with these three simple steps. In light of our rapidly diminishing landfill space, the increase in plastic pollution in our waters, and the deterioration of our environment, it is imperative that we practice these.


Reducing the amount of waste that is produced by your daily activities is one of the best things you can do for the environment! Whenever you shop, take into consideration how much packaging you are buying and having to throw away. For example, meat is still packaged in Styrofoam trays and plastic packaging is used for shelf-life extension. These are inevitable for some food items, so try to recycle the things that can be recycled, such as food cans and cardboard boxes. We should be aware of this.

If you carpool, walk, take public transportation, or take your bike instead of driving, you can make a huge impact on the environment. Besides saving gas, you are reducing pollution by reducing emissions.

Print both sides of the paper to reduce wastage of paper. When eating lunch at work, keep silverware and reusable napkins with you. Also, a reusable bag is a decent idea to put these in.

Approximately 80% of people do not know that food waste rots in landfills and releases methane, which contributes to global warming. Whether you believe global warming exists or not, landfill space is drying out, and we are running out of space to store all our trash. Composting is a simple way to reduce food waste.


Instead of using single-use items such as plastic containers or plastic shopping bags, use a reusable solution.Instead of using plastic zipper baggies, store leftovers in reusable containers. Lunches should also be packed in similar containers. Reusing sauce, salsa, and other condiment jars makes excellent storage jars! Jars are wonderful for keeping homemade things, or if you buy in bulk from bulk food bins, as stated in the Reduce section, jars provide great containers for an eco-friendly transition. Carry your silverware when preparing your lunch for school or work—you’ll feel better knowing you’re not throwing away a plastic one every day. The same goes for a recyclable coffee cup or bottle of water.


Recycling is advantageous in a variety of ways. Not only are you saving recyclable objects from ending up in landfills, where they might take hundreds of years to decay, but you are also giving your throwaway item a second life.

It is critical to remember the three Rs in our daily lives. Our ecosystem provides us with so much; now is the time to give back to our planet and surroundings.
