Tip#3 - Think 5R’s

A good way to reduce your waste is to keep in mind the 5R’s:

  • Refuse - leaflets (in shops, in the mail - put a “No junk mail” sticker on your mailbox), freebees, plastic bags...

  • Reduce - waste, use of single use plastics, unnecessary clothing...

  • Reuse or repair - what you already have, think about borrowing before buying...

  • Recycle,

  • Rot, put a compost bin or a worm farm in your home, it’s even possible indoor ( If you don’t have a compost bin, you can also find people who will take your waste in your area with this app: ShareWaste,

Finally, if you need to buy anything: think second hand before buying new!
