There are many things that you could do.  Among them would be such things as:

  • Eating fewer packaged foods.  Foods made from scratch have less packaging than pre-made foods.
  • Recycling things that you do need to use.  Tin cans and plastic bottles and such can generally be recycled.  
  • Donating things to charity.  When you are no longer using things like toys or clothes, don't throw them away.  Instead, give them to charity.
  • Use less electricity.  You don't actually see the waste from this, but electricity use typically causes things like pollution that are a form of waste.
