Encouraged reuse: Last time I went to our local market, an employee gave me two very sturdy cloth shopping bags for free . Then when I checked out, they credited me .05 each for using them — as they will do each time I use them in the future.
Forced reuse: The LCD display on my new HP Pavilion notebook is on the fritz. After speaking with a representative in India on what seemed to be a very bad VOIP connection, I learned that I’ll have to ship it back to them for repairs. That means I’ll be doubling up usage on my other systems for a couple of weeks.
Natural reuse: It’s snowing here. Happy December!
