forget the 3 Rs

I spend more time than I like reducing, reusing, and then recycling everything else. I’d almost forgotten about the original and number one R. Refuse. If I don’t bring junk home, I don’t have to worry about reusing and recycling. Join me in saying, “Thank you so much, but no thank you.” I’m applying this to hand-me-downs, business cards, and event swag (like conferences and parties, although sometimes it’s so tempting). For family, you can even add, “I love you, but I don’t love that (fill in the blank).” If I know I’m going to give it away – cool as it may look at the moment- I’m going to try not to take it in the first place.
