As much as we talk about the importance of recycling, the United States is the number one trash-producing country in the world. This means that 5% of the world’s population generates 40% of the world’s waste! With this being National Recycling Week, I thought it would be fun to show you some ways to conserve waste and save money by repairing, versus replacing, your appliances. The below infograph, from Part Select, shows the cost to replace some common appliances. If you click on the buttons, possible symptoms and their fixes are shown. Have fun playing around with this and maybe next time one of your resident’s dishwasher leaks, you can save some money by repairing it.
