How do you say 'Reduce, reuse and recycle' in your native language? I have to do a little art project for class and want to do the entire background of the paper using those three words up above but in different languages because the theme is recycling. And if it's good enough, it could end up in a calendar. I'd appreciate if you all helped out. (:

In Polish: Ograniczenie (Zmniejszenie), ponowne wykorzystanie i recykling. Reduce is mean "Redukcja", but it is very technical word. In this context better to say "Ograniczenie" or "Zmniejszenie". We can use word "Redukcja" when we say "Redukcja odpadów".

I can give you three languages. Only one is my first language (Spanish) but I know enough of the other two to know that the alliteration carries over well in those languages, if not the cadence. In French: réutiliser, réduire, recycler In Spanish: reutilizar, reducir, reciclar In Portuguese: reutilizar, reduzir, reciclar
