Waste and Recycling
Waste disposal is a major cause of harm to the environment, through the release of greenhouse gases, the use of land and energy, and the impact on plant and animal life.
Minimising the creation of waste is the first step to reducing this impact
- Restrict the amount of new things you acquire by focussing on what you need rather than what you want.
- When you do buy, consider try to minimise the amount of packaging, particularly non-recyclable packaging, and consider the waste implications of the product.
