Even better than recycling, the number one way to reduce waste is to not create it in the first place. With a little planning, you can stop waste before you bring it home from the grocery store. By refusing unnecessary packaging and reusing containers and bags that you already have, you’ll be on your way to zero waste.
One of the unique things about Extreme Community Makeover is that each person who is involved has their own story about ECM which is tied to their unique experience. Thus, we would like to share some of these stories with you throughout the year. The first story comes from Eric, who is the leader of the Projects Team and has been volunteering with ECM since 2010.
