Many materials can easily be reused or recycled. Plastic products with the numbers 1-7 on the bottom, metal cans, cardboard, paper and wax cartons can be recycled for free with the city’s program. Many materials can also be reused and repurposed, such as using a used tomato sauce jar as a mug.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Using recyclable and reusable materials decreases an organization’s consumption, waste and carbon footprint. It can help an organization save money on new purchases.
For New Orleans
Using recyclable and reusable materials decreases the amount of waste sent to landfills, decreases the consumption of natural resources, saves energy, prevents pollution, decreases greenhouse gases and helps to maintain the environment for future generations.
