First of all, what does the term reusing mean? It simply means giving an object or container a second life without major industrial transformation. In other words, the reused object is not an entirely different product.
This simple gesture reduces the use of new resources, decreases the amount of materials to be buried, and even saves money!
The reuse of products is the second favoured approach after reduction at source. The more you reuse your old goods by giving them a second life, the more you significantly reduce your environmental impact.
The practice of reusing helps preserve natural resources since it does not involve the production of new goods.
In addition, by helping to extend an object’s life, reusing delays the start of a larger transformation that requires more energy. It also creates jobs and offers less fortunate people the chance to buy items at low cost.
Finally, reusing constitutes an option for the environment as well as the disposal of goods.
