Introduction to Enviroman

Enviroman is offering himself in campaigns to help protect our environment. He wants to promote the 3Rs and 1F - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, FREECYCLE. Everyone knows the symbol for recycle, the 3 arrows. Recycling is a commendable activity. However, as compare to direct Reuse, recycling is a more involved process. It require more steps as compared to direct Reuse and often produces more secondary pollution. For example, the recycling of paper uses much energy, chemicals and water and the polluted waste water need further treatment before it can be released back into the rivers. So Enviroman wants concerned spaceship EARTH passengers to help in a campaign to increase awareness of the need to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and FREECYCLE, with an emphasis on the simpler processes like Reuse and FREECYCLE. As you may have noticed, Enviroman has clothed himself with a single arrow, a symbol for direct REUSE. He hopes that this single arrow symbol will become as well known as the 3 arrows symbol for Recycle. Help Enviroman in this task by putting words into his mouth.
