Recycling Resolutions for 2023
How to earn more and protect the planet with these simple resolutions.
A new year means many of us will set resolutions. Such as eating healthier, saving more money, or seeing friends more. What about a resolution to help protect the planet? We ask that everyone sets at least one Recycling Resolution for 2023. Check out this list below and choose one for yourself.
Use a reusable water bottle
If you’re going to stick to this resolution, you’ll have to love your water bottle. Splurge for one that has the features you like, such as a flip-up lid, a handle, rubber grip. There are literally thousands to choose from. Keep an eye on Black Friday sales to find one that works for you. AND don’t beat yourself up if you end up buying a single-use water bottle; just be sure to recycle it at one of our depots or by using Depozip.
Bring your thermal coffee mug with you
Have you noticed the cup fee when you visit your favourite coffee shop? It’s at least $0.25 per beverage. However, you can skip this cost and protect the planet by bringing your thermal mug with you to the office and coffee shops.
No more single-use plastics – such as straws, utensils, and cups
While this is a relatively simple resolution to follow on your own, it can be more challenging at social gatherings. If you notice an event you’re at using single-use plastics, be sure to put your items in the plastic recycling bin. Every bit helps!
Pack your lunch the sustainable way
Ditch the old brown bag lunch for a reusable lunch bag. Cloth grocery bags, mini coolers and old-school lunch boxes are all great options that can be reused for years. No need for plastic zip locks for your sandwich; use reusable Tupperware or glass containers to heat up your lunch.
