Reusing items - by repairing them, donating them to charity and community groups, or selling them - reduces waste. Reusing products, when possible, is even better than recycling because the item does not need to be reprocessed before it can be used again. There are a number of ways to find previously owned items. Buying these items or exchanging them with others is a great way to help the planet.
Check out the following links for great places to find previously used items.
