Hello! Can you believe I'm 20 years old? I know -- it's hard to believe. I really don't look a day over 10! I wish I could say the same about all the stuff in our office. The folks who take care of me could sure use your help. We need to replace old, decrepit items like our copier and printer and need help keeping office supplies stocked.

Reduce how much we consume to really reduce our impact on the environment, from the raw materials that come out of the ground, to the resources used to transport products. The fewer things we buy, the less space we need to store them, and the less we throw out in the future.
Reuse what we already have, or buy things second-hand. The resources have already been used to make these items, so we should get all the use we can out of them. Often, we purchase a product because it is the “new and improved” version of what we already own – but it’s funny how we were perfectly happy with what we had until the new one came out. We can also reuse what we already have for a different purpose. This is called “upcycling”, and is a popular trend in furniture and home décor.
Recycle to save more raw materials and the extra energy required to make new products. For example, recycling just one ton of paper can save enough energy to heat a home for six months! Recycling is one of the easiest and most effective ways for Dallas residents to get involved in the City’s efforts to conserve our resources and protect the environment. We can all work together to lessen our environmental footprint by making a conscious choice to pitch our recyclables in the Big, Blue Bin or Community Recycling Container.
