Millions of trashes are created every day in households. We throw away most of the things. But there are things that can easily be reused. Here are five things in your home that you can reuse instead of throwing them away.
1. Plastic bags
When we throw plastic bags, they end up in landfills. You can keep them instead for future shopping use. You can also use layers of plastic bags to store valuable items. Plastic bags can be recycled. They can also be donated.
2. Old CDs or DVDs
If you have CDs or DVDs that you know longer need or that are damaged, you upcycle them instead of throwing them away. You can use them as decorative items or make ornaments with them. If you keep discs on tree limbs, they can keep birds away. There are many CD recycling centers available where you can take the CDs for recycling.
3. Used tea bags
We consume tea every day. You can easily reuse your tea bags for various purposes. You can use them for relieving puffy eyes, soothing insect bites, treating small burns, using as compost, etc.
4. Old glass containers
You can reuse your old glass containers with lids in many ways. You can use it to keep leftovers. You can also use it to store pasta, sugar, rice, etc. You can keep cookies and nuts in it as well.
We should reuse as many things as possible. We should try to reduce the number of landfills and make our environment less polluted.
