One of the first rules we learn as island protectors is the 3Rs rule. It's very simple to remember:
Reduce! Reuse! Recycle!
By following the 3Rs rule, we can reduce the amount of greenhouse gases we create. This means that we will reduce our carbon footprint.
Reduce the amount of things you use so you have less to throw away.
Reuse what you already have.
Recycle what you use wherever possible.
There are lots of ideas on how to live by the 3Rs rule under Caring for the Environment.
