Reduce, reuse and recycle is the ‘three R mantra’. It is an effective approach to eliminate waste and conserve resources.

  •  Reduce: Using fewer resources helps in reducing their consumption, e.g. use of less paper and less plastic carry bags.
  •  Reuse: Using things again rather than throwing them after using them only once is called reuse, e.g. plastic jars can be reused for storing salt and food grains.
  •  Recycle: The process in which substances which are used before are put back into process to make new items is called recycling, e.g. used and discarded  plastics, glass, paper and metal are sent to the respective industries where they can be converted to other useful products such as lampshades and handbags.
