1.2.1. Renewable sources are unlimited resources that do not abate, they are natural and replenish with time.

1.2.1.1. Examples

1.2.1.1.1. - Tidal

1.2.1.1.2. - Hydro

1.2.1.1.3. - Thermal

1.2.1.1.4. - Wave

2.1. As a throwaway society, we must learn strategies to be able to endure the changes and scarcities present in our society, some of these are:

2.1.1. RE - USE

2.1.1.1. Re using an object means to use again an object when it has no other apparent use. This can also be when the object is used again for similar purpose, and new-life reuse where it is used for an innovative purpose.
