Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
and Respect
Reduce
• To reduce the size,
•
•
number, or use of

important.
Each person in the US
produces four pounds
of trash per day.
When we reduce, we
use less of something.
Recycle

items that could be
recycled.
Recycling puts objects
through a process
that allows them to
be used again.
Reuse

put into action or
service again.
Instead of throwing
some trash away,
people can find new
ways to reuse it.
Many items are
reusable.

treat with
consideration.
We can respect the
Earth by using less
