The Three Rs

One thing about spending so much time at home over the past year is that I have really looked at how we use and live in our space. Which means, if you’re me, plans and projects.

We are good recyclers – but recycling takes up space! Our program only lets us put some things in our blue boxes, the rest must be taken by us to the depot. That means organization which is what I finally got under control this year.

What the project got me thinking about however, was how we – as a society – have focused on only one of the three Rs.

Whatever happened to Reduce and Reuse? Those were supposed to be equally weighted but we in this large space and first world luxury don’t want to think about using less.

So, this year I am hoping to train my little household of two to think more about those other Rs. How can we reduce and reuse? I’d love to hear how other people incorporate the three Rs into their lives.


Welcome! I always like to hear what people think of a post, it often leads to a great discussion! I am now responding to comments and questions right in the comments themselves, so other people can follow the conversation.
