what will you do to lessen the garbage?

I make the plastic bags into plarn (plastic yarn) and then crochet this platic yarn into a new tote bag or shopping bag. Here is the link to a sample of such a recycled bag. http://www.myrecycledbags.com/ (If the link does not work just copy and paste it) I got the idea from this website, too.

i reuse the plastic bag...untill they cant be reused again...we give all the papers, stationary for recycleing. flower petals are buried in the earh for they make good mannure and most of the kitchen waste in our house and the neighbourhood is collected and sent to dairies for cows...we had hired a rickshaw pullaer for this work..all these thing have reduced the garbage to 20%

I try to reuse all the plastic bags I get from the supermarket. For example, we save all the ones that are dry and put them away for whenever we need them. Also, I only throw away my old school papers in school where there is paper recycling available. Unfortunately there isn't a recycling program for paper or plastic where I live. Whenever I go to the beach though I make sure to use the recycling bins that are available there.
