In the last week or so, I posted about products that save planetary resources: toilet paper made from recycled paper so trees aren't cut down; mentrual cups that allow women to avoid buying and throwing away thousands of tampons; and the straight razor to avoid the use of throwaway plastic razors.
Today, I thought it would be great to hear your thoughts on other products or methods you have or use to avoid the throwaway culture. it could be anything from making rags from old clothes to avoid paper towel to a method you have for recharging batteries.
In other words, what products or methods do you use to avoid trashing resources? How did you come by the idea? How does it work for you? Is it easier or harder than the throwaway alternative?
