Who hasn’t heard of the 3Rs! The 3R philosophy is one which aims to grapple with the increasing wastes of our society and reduce the carbon footprint that humans are leaving on Earth. Our planet holds all the key resources for our survival. Managing these resources smartly is important to conserve them for future generations and “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” are one of the most effective methods to achieve this objective.
Reduce believes in cutting down the extraction and usage of resources and raw materials so that they remain “locked up”.
Reuse seeks to encourage people to take up what people view as ‘WASTE’ and give them a new purpose, basically finding some use for junk.
Recycle is the eco-friendly cycle that promotes transformation of a product to its raw material and then be used to craft something new.
The 3Rs should be incorporated into every business institution, manufacturing industries and other companies. It will not only benefit the environment but also be more economical and will positively impact the society as a whole. Wastes will be reduced, formation of more landfills prevented and it will lead to a healthier, more sustainable approach towards the future.
