LEE COUNTY FLA. — During the holidays we tend to create more waste than any other time of the year. Make a difference this holiday season with these simple tips:

Shop with reusable bags. Plastic bags are harmful to animals and the environment. Reusable bags are stronger and can hold more if you buy a larger bag.

People are shopping online now more than ever. Shipping and packaging materials can be recycled. Click here for Lee County’s list of items that can be safely recycled.

You can also help reduce waste and help others by donating items you no longer use that are still in good condition.

America Recycles Day is Nov.15, recognizing the importance and impact of recycling, which has contributed to American prosperity and the protection of our environment.
