Remember the three R's: reduce, reuse and recycle? Well, I just realized that they are listed in order of importance. While recycling is awesome, we should really focus on reducing our consumption and, in the example below, reusing the things we already have.
This little piece of wall art hangs next to my sink at the Armstrong House Education Center to instruct my guests of our sponge reuse policy. I cannot take credit for this – it was inspired by a friend of mine. Feel free to replicate. Stay tuned for more adorable conservation-based wall art in the future. Send me yours and I will post it on the Blog.
