One of the best ways to take care of our environment is by recycling and reducing waste. Even the construction and building materials Malaysia should know how to recycle and reduce waste.

Join your neighborhood recycling program
Most neighborhoods have their own recycling program where they would come to your house and pick up your recycling items. The first step to recycle is by joining this program. They will constantly remind you to recycle all of your items.
If your neighborhood does not have recycling programs you can always look for any recycling bins that are near your neighborhood. Most of these recycling bins will allow you to recycle your basic items like paper, glass, plastics, and metals.
Buy recycled goods items
When you are buying anything, check the labels and see if the items can be recycled. Nowadays there are many items that are put on a label on their packaging saying that their products can be recycled. If doing this small thing can help our planet, why not?
Other than recycling, we should also learn how to reduce waste, here are some ways that we can do to reduce waste in our lives.
Bring your bottle
Instead of spending money buying mineral water, why not bring along your own bottle of water. Not only it will help you to reduce the use of plastic but it will also help you to save money. We all know that plastic will take years to compost itself and it is not a nature-friendly material, so by using your own bottle of water you can help to reduce the use of plastic.
Avoid using plastic bags whenever you purchase something, bring along a small tote bag with you so that you can store all of your items in the bag. Not only you are doing goods for the environment but you are also living a sustainable life. You can use your tote bag for a really long time and it is easier to store in your house.

Some of the clothes that we have bought, we never ever wear it or we only wear it once. To avoid living like this, we should start thrifting and donating our clothes. Not only we can reduce waste but we can also give back to society.
These are just some ways and tips that we can incorporate into our lives, to make sure that we are living sustainable lives that are good for the environment and also good for our lifestyles.
