Which of the three R’s is most important to the environment?

    The three R’s are actually listed in terms of priority. The most important step is to reduce. The less we take, the less damage we do in the first place. After you’ve reduced, you reuse the product as many times as you can (this is really another way of reducing your need for new products, as well), THEN you recycle. Recycling takes time and energy, so while it’s preferable to things hitting the landfill, it’s still not as good for the environment as NOT having a product being created was in the first place.
