Reusing at Home
You can reuse many things in your home everyday. Some great things
to reuse are:
- Plastic bags — plastic
bags from the supermarket are strong and you can use them again
and again. Once you have finished using them take them back to the
to be recycled.
- Cardboard boxes — these
can be reused to store things in and around your home.
- Furniture — remember
that repairing things can make them last longer.
and Audio tapes — video tapes can be used again and again.
So once you have watched your favourite movie enough times you
the video to tape something else.
- Textbooks — look
after your school textbooks, so that students in a lower year can
use them when you've finished with them.
- Clothes — these
can go from one family member to another. So look after them so
they last a long time.
- Old sheets and towels — even
if old sheets and towels have been torn or ripped, they can still
be reused as wiping rags in your home or for washing cars.
bits and pieces — Making gifts and other fun stuff is a great
way to reuse things around the house that might have otherwise
been thrown away.
