We can each cope with this problem of waste, helping the earth (and ourselves too) out of its sad state, by practicing three simple things: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. So simple, I think that we can practice it directly in our daily life, without any confusing theoretical talks (but habituation): in our office, our kitchen, our outdoor activities, etc.

Reduce: we can live simple, reducing or cutting down the amount of the waste. Think twice when you use something: Would it produce more waste? Try to make the best, avoiding waste-producing choice, or reduce using something which has in effect great amount of waste. If we can hold something easily with our hand fingers without some plastic bags as a medium, then we can just hold it with Solo Plastic Cups our fingers. That's cool. You and I are really making a better environment via this little steps.
