Toward a New Set of Three “R”s

I’ve been thinking about this for a long time now. Reduce, reuse, recycle is a fantastic approach to conservation and economic restraint. While I still find value in these, I want to put forth a few more options. The first set of words below are grouped together as a new set of three, but in general it’s just a list of “Re”s. Did I miss some? Have more to add? Leave us a comment.

Repair Repurpose Reclaim

Regift
Replenish
Reinvent
Restore
Refurbish
Reconsider
Refinish (NOTE: This was added after the original publishing of this article)

There is however, one that does not fit. Don’t replace.

    Thanks Chris. It’s funny you mention that. I was thinking about adding resale/resell (http://2ndgreenrevolution.com/2010/10/30/craigslist-and-classifieds-toward-a-sustainable-future/) OR return your old technology/goods.

    …except, “replace” old tech with new, better more efficient stuff!
