Paper wallet just in case you are like me, too cheap to buy a legitimate wallet.
The Three R's
Reduce: Reducing the amount of resources and waste being produced. ex. not buying things with a lot of packaging; not using a lot of paper
Recycle: By putting items that are recyclable, they go through a process so that they can be used again. ex. plastic is recyclable; paper is recyclable
Reuse: Finding a new use of something instead of throwing it away. ex. milk jug as a water container; plastic containers for food can be used again and again
Upcycling: reusing trash or discarded items in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original. ex. paper wallet made out of useless AP Lang notes
Difference b/w recycling and upcycling: Recycling is a practice that takes an item and targets it for reuse, returning it back to the cycle of daily contribution to society rather than discarding it to trash, but Upcycling is described by some as reusing a material without degrading the quality and composition of the material for its next use.
