Marks and Spencer Shwop

 

Here is a ranking of possible environmental actions  in increasing order of environmental benefit

1. To burn material for energy is better than sending it to a landfill.

2. To recycle it is better than burning it.

3. To reuse material is better than recycling it.

4. To reduce the amount needed is better than reusing it.

5. To eliminate the need for material is better than reducing it.
