We can help reduce waste by making careful choices about what we buy, use and throw away. Here are some tips:
Reduce: Buy items with reduced packaging. Use less pesticides and cleaners to help protect the environment. Buy only what you really need and buy durable products not disposable ones. Get in the habit of using re-usable shopping bags instead of plastic disposable ones.
Reuse: Repair items instead of buying new ones. Reuse bags and containers. Consider renting or loaning items that you don’t use frequently. Sell unwanted items or give them to charity.
