Reuse in 3R's and Guidelines
The second R in the three R's is the Reuse which is one of the best ways to prevent waste. Manufacturing a new product will drain our natural resources, increase pollution and also leads to a lot of unwanted wastes. Instead of buying new products, try to reuse the existing product as much as possible before replacing it. Also, try to avoid non-reusable products like paper plates and any natural resources. Reusing the product is economic and it provides a safe environment.
