Here are some tips to reduce, reuse, and recycle while remodeling:
Reduce your water and electric bills.
Save money using energy-efficient LED lighting options. Easy to install solutions like Low Flow Water Efficient Showerheads, Dual Flush Toilet Converters or Tank Bags can significantly reduce your water bill.
Reuse items from your old kitchen.
As opposed to pitching items, consider reusing or repurposing them elsewhere. Those old kitchen cabinets might not be good enough for the kitchen but are great for storage in the basement or garage.
Recycle the old.
Instead of throwing away outdated appliances and fixtures, think about donating them to people in need or to Habitat for Humanity.
