Abstract: 

This video gives some concrete suggestions on how we can reduce what we throw away. Buying durable goods and taking care of them helps them last longer, reducing waste. Over-packaged and disposable goods waste energy and resources while creating more trash than is necessary, but using refillable containers may actually save money. Selecting less-toxic household products can also help reduce the stress on our environment.
