Waste is anything released into the environment that could have a negative impact on that environment.
The average American throws away 4.5 pounds of trash (waste) a day!
Waste could be anything from paper to diapers or food to batteries.
3 What can I do to help The Three Rs
Reduce means to make something smaller or use less resulting in a smaller amount of waste.
Reusing something means to use a material again in its original form or to give it to someone else who can use it.
Recycling is when you save a reusable material and take it to where it can be made into something new.
4 How can I REDUCE
Buy less buy only what you need and use all of what you buy.
Use durable items instead of disposable ones. For example buy plastic plates that you can used many times instead of paper ones that you throw away after one use.
Refuse store bags. Carry the items you purchase from the store by hand or bring your own cloth bag to use.
5 How can I REUSE
Donate used clothes to Goodwill or other charities.
Use cloth diapers instead of disposable ones.
If your bicycle breaks fix it instead of throwing it away and getting a new bike.

11 About Me!
My name is Mandy Lynch. I am 22 years old and in my fifth year at Western Michigan University. I am an Elementary Education Major with Early Childhood and English minors. I will be completing my Elementary Education Internship in the spring and I am really excited to graduate!
My hometown is Portage MI where I live on a farm with my parents Mick and Lisa. We have six horses and three dogs and I have pretty much lived in a barn for most of my life. My sister Laura who is 25 won the World Championship Morgan Horse Competition in 1997 for English Pleasure. I am planning on showing again once I graduate and teaching my niece Hannah how to ride. She is only a year old but I love her more than anything!
The newest addition to my family is my Beta fish Frosted. He was named by a four-year-old whose mom would not let her name her own fish Frosted because It is not a noun! Her Betas name is Corn Flake.
I was a cheerleader here at Western for four years and I loved it! I coached two season of JV Cheerleading at Portage Central High School and it is definitely something I would like to do again. I decided not to do it this year because I will not have time while completing my internship. I do not cheer anymore but my boyfriend Anthony is on Westerns football team so I go to all the games anyway! Im his personal cheerleader and 1 fan! Go Broncos! (He is in the picture above on the left. He has no hair and a big smile.)
Every free second I get I am reading or running. Anthony and my favorite date spot is Barnes Noble where we read relax and drink mocha frapachinos. I just finished reading Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus The Nanny Diaries and I loved it! I also just joined West Hills Athletic Club which is like my second home now.
I currently work at a child care center in the infant and toddler room. I tutor a ESL student (English as a Second Language) twice a week. I am also the Volunteer Coordinator of Sigma Tau Delta the English Honors Society here at WMU.
I live by the quote Do what you love and love what you do!
