Do you make an effort to purchase products made from post-consumer recycled material?
If you recycle do you also buy products made from recycled material?
Yes, I usually opt to buy products made from recycled materials over those that are not. I was brought up by a frugal (but not stingy) mom. We make it a point to maximize the use of any item.

We don't even have recyling in my town but I do it myself.

reduce, reuse, recycle: that is the philosophy of my household. when possible I buy products that are made from post-consumer materials.

My biggest challenge is not to buy stuff has a better alternative. For example; buying plastic storage containers for the fridge instead of remembering that they make glass containers that last a life-time and do the same thing. Thank you for the question.
Yes, I usually do so there is less waste in the world. I like to reuse and build from the old so that something new is created instead of garbage.
I often buy products from recycled materials. In Indonesia, especially in Yogyakarta many recycled products are very unique and have artistic value. So I am happy to buy products from recycled materials.
