when it comes to reducing the waste you produce at home:
Energy: There is a finite amount of energy available from tra-
ditional (non-renewable) sources such as coal and oil. Develop-
ing alternative, renewable energies (such as solar, wind and
geothermal) helps to reduce our dependence on non-renewable

Solid Waste: Because landfills are so tightly packed, it takes a
great deal of time for material to decompose. The easiest way
to reduce solid waste is to reduce your consumption of daily
products. Be cautious of what you buy, and whether anything
you are going to put in a trash really belongs there.
Stay tuned!
