What is reuse?
Reuse means just what it sounds like: using something again rather than throwing it out. That usually means finding a new use, such as making a jelly jar into a drinking glass.

Reuse conserves the energy and raw materials needed to make new products, and doing so saves energy and reduces the amount of pollution factories release into the air and water. By recycling or reusing plastic, metal, or glass items, you can reduce the need to mine, transport, and manufacture natural resources to make new products.
