Things like plastic bottles can be utilized for other purposes around the house. Magazines shouldn’t end up in the trash can immediately we are done with them. They can always be used for other purposes, for example, for making earrings and necklaces. When it comes to food, we can always serve portions which we are sure to finish including when we eat out. This way, less food goes to waste. It goes without saying, if whatever we intend to throw in the trash is damaged beyond repair or soiled, then it ends up in the trash can.
