The last and final step of the 5R's is REFUSE. Refuse or in other words "decline" or "say no" is one very effective way in saving the Earth. Without this, the 5R's will not be complete. One example of doing this is by refusing to use plastic bags. When you buy things that can be carried, like a pen, don't ask for a plastic bag anymore. In doing this, you will be able to lessen trash. Another way of practicing this 5th R is by refusing to buy over-packed products. Instead of buying products that are packed with very thick packaging, buy those that use less. This could really help in saving our resources, lessening our trash and saving trees.
