To help people mark the day, Waste Management has put together a few helpful tips:
1. Choose products that use recycled materials, such as printer paper and water bottles.
2. Use reusable water bottles, lunch boxes or shopping bag to avoid expensive packaging, which increase the cost for products.
3. Bring reusable shopping bags to the store. Leave one or two in the car at all times. Some stores offer rebates to customers who use these bags.
