While there are many safe ways to incorporate reusing existing products into your green lifestyle, you should consider implementing safe reuse practices. Use the considerations below in choosing safe reuse practices as part of your commitment to going green.
If you’re considering handing down old china or you own handed down china, you are participating in a family tradition that could be dangerous in terms of lead content.

Use lead-testing kits that can help determine whether you should reuse the china as dishware or simply keep it for its decorative or nostalgic value.
