Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: Recycling tips for the holidays

It refers to the idea of purchasing items made with recycled materials instead of brand-new products, like recycling a cell phone and then buying a refurbished one. Similarly, one can “close the loop” with decorations and wrappings by recycling any waste one year , and then choosing recycled cards and paper the following year.
