Re: [GreenYes] Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Symbols
I am not aware of any specific symbols for reduce or reuse.  However, here's
my suggestion for creating a graphic for showing the three R's (reduce,
reuse, recycle):

1. Start with a square and draw a triangle within it so that three
triangular sections are created.

2. In the first triangle, insert a prohibitory symbol (circle with a
diagonal line) with a trash can inside.  This is for reduce or no waste.

3. The second triangle contains a reuse symbol.  I am suggesting a circle
with a single arrow suggesting constant rotation.

4. In the third triangle, insert the chasing arrows for recycling.
