The following tips will help you understand just how easy it is to apply the '3R' principle. All you have to do is think ahead.
â�¢ Take no more new bank notes and lai-see packets than necessary.
â�¢ Bring your own bags to reduce consumption of plastic shopping bags.
â�¢ Adopt simple packaging and minimize gift wrapping to avoid wastage of resources.
â�¢ Choose more durable products. Think twice before shopping to avoid purchasing unnecessary items and cause wastage.

â�¢ Use reusable tableware during gatherings and parties and avoid excessive food.
â�¢ Reuse lai-see packets and bank notes for lai-see.
â�¢ Store holiday decorations, such as plastic Christmas trees and ornaments for reuse in the following year. Good quality decorations could be reused many times.
â�¢ Donate unwanted gifts to needies through charitable organizations.
â�¢ Separate all recyclable materials, such as metals, plastics, waste paper and other recyclables from waste stream and put them in recycling bins to facilitate recycling.
