                The cotton that comes in the tops of pill bottles to keep them from breaking during shipping.

                        Mousetraps? Who doesn't reuse mousetraps? Do you just throw the whole trap out? I'm not sure I'm following this. We always reuse mousetraps until they are inoperable.

                          Egg and milk cartons, and straws.

                          Believe it or not, when I was studying abroad in Costa Rica, this little corner cafe that I frequented for lunch in San Jose reused their customers' straws. I discovered this when I noticed that the ends of my straws always seemed frayed -- and then one day I saw them washing them behind the counter. I didn't use straws there after that!

                              Ziploc bags. Wash and reuse. In fact, Gaiam sells a "coatrack" looking thing that allows you to dry ziploc bags.
