The Four R’s for Earth Day (and Every Day!)

 

With Earth Day approaching, we’re reminded of the importance of incorporating environmentally responsible practices in our everyday lives. At Thayers, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment by using packaging that is recyclable or reusable, including biodegradable wipes in our Toning Towelettes.

Here are some ways to show Mother Nature some love by practicing the four R’s: reduce, reuse, recycle, rebuy.

Reduce

  • Bring your own reusable bags instead of plastic shopping bags
  • Buy items in bulk and choose products that have the least amount of packaging

Reuse 

  • Eliminate paper products (plates, utensils, etc.) and choose reusable items instead of disposable
  • Use both sides of paper when printing

Recycle

  • Donate to local retailers that accept used products
  • Establish recycling programs and initiatives in your home, work and school

Rebuy 

  • Shop at consignment and thrift stores
  • Purchase products that contain recycled materials (bottles, cans, bags, wrapping paper, etc.)
