People often assume that littering is a waste of money, but a new study finds it’s actually quite effective.
In a paper published on Tuesday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers found that a mix of common household items such as litter, paper towels, and trash bags saved up to $10 per day by avoiding these common sources of waste.
The researchers also found that these products can be recycled, which is especially important in urban areas where water and garbage are frequently treated with chemicals.
In some cases, the researchers found, the items were even more effective at reducing the amount of litter and other pollutants in people’s homes.
The authors say the results show that people who are willing to spend time and energy to avoid littering are actually more likely to make healthier, happier lives.
The study looked at the use of disposable items and the amount and type of trash they are collected in.
It found that most people do waste more than one-third of their disposable items, and more than 90 percent of the time the trash is in an environment where it can easily be removed, or in the hands of someone who can easily pick it up.
It’s not uncommon for people to collect trash in their cars, in the open, or even in the garbage cans of other homes, the authors write.
Litter is a huge problem for cities around the world.
In 2013, more than half of Americans said they had collected more than 1,000 pieces of litter.
In the United States, one in seven households reported that they had at least one person collecting trash for personal use.
Littered cars can lead to an increased risk of crashes, property damage, and injury.
Lying in a vehicle while it’s raining can also make it more difficult to clean up the mess, the paper says.
And while it seems obvious that it’s a waste, people don’t always realize it’s costing them money to keep litter in their homes, according to the study.
Researchers surveyed more than 7,000 people in 19 countries and found that about a quarter of respondents said that they collected trash for their own use, and about 1 in 10 of those respondents had collected trash in an open area, a location where litter can easily find its way out.
The paper suggests that reducing waste is a key part of a sustainable society.
Lifestyle choices that decrease the amount that people dispose of their trash also have the biggest impact on the environment.
Lifting litter out of the ground and into the streets is one of the easiest ways to do this.
According to the report, people who recycle their trash and recycle the materials they reuse in their own homes, as well as recycling the garbage themselves, saved more than $10,000 in landfill and recycling fees, and also saved an estimated $4,800 per year in energy costs.
The key is that people choose to reduce their litter and waste, and they choose to take action that can help to improve the environment, the study concludes.
