What are the “R’s”


All “R’s” really, symbolize all those little things we can do in our everyday life, making life better for ourselves, for the others and for the ‘whole’.  Try and see where you could use the “R’s”, observe yourself, be mindful, maybe you will discover, you really like using the “R’s” consciously and feel really good about it! Maybe you will feel like having super powers and becoming a super hero!


Who knows? One thing is for sure though: acting small scale can make a change! «The power of a lot of people acting correctly is the most important thing» says Darby Hoover, an NRDC senior resource specialist. The “R’s” can be helpful to you, your community, and the environment by creating a common good, a common benefit for all. It is most probable that you will realize saving money, energy, natural resources, while at the same time you will probably enjoy more your time, your personalized items and you will come closer to yourself and to others.
