Reduce: We must take action to reduce the production of products which become waste, ration purchase measures, proper use of products and purchase of sustainable products.

Reuse: It is the action of reusing products and giving them another use. It is any operation by which waste is reused for a different purpose for which they were created. The more objects we reuse, the less waste that is produced and less resources are used.

Recycle: A process aimed at turning waste into new products or materials for further use. By recycling we prevent disuse of potentially useful materials and  the consumption of new raw materials which reduces energy use, air (by incineration) and water (through landfills) pollution as well as reducing emissions of greenhouse gases compared to the production of plastics.
