Minimising waste in the first place is so important, and critical as landfill space becomes ever more limited. Minimising the amount of waste generated int he first place is the best way to start…

Simple tips for reducing waste:

  • Take your own reusable bags grocery shopping
  • Reuse plastic grocery bags as bin liners
  • Buy fresh fruit and vegetables unwrapped and unpackaged
  • Only purchase quantities you are sure to use
  • Buy non-perishable items in bulk
  • Actively prefer to purchase products packaged in recycled packaging or in packaging that can further be recycled
  • Purchase reusable, rechargeable, and recyclable items
  • Recycle as much as possible
  • Repair broken items wherever possible rather than buying new
  • Don’t purchase or use disposable plates, cups, or cutlery
  • Don’t use disposable straws
  • “Mend and make do” – look at ways to revamp clothing rather than buying new: convert dresses to skirts, have clothing tailored, raise hemlines, etc.
  • Borrow things you rarely use
  • Consider purchasing good-quality, second hand items where suitable
  • Consider growing your own herbs or vegetables at home
  • Donate good-quality, unwanted books, clothing, toys, furniture, etc to charity
  • Join a library
  • Purchase an e-reader and opt for e-books over paper books
  • Compost food scraps
  • Choose to use lunchboxes instead of using plastic wrap.
  • Freeze leftovers where suitable
  • Reuse jars and containers

    • Use coffee grounds and chilli powder as ant deterrents
    • Buy unbleached tissue, towel and toilet paper made from recycled materials
  • Invest in a worm farm
  • Buy pet food and cat litter in bulk
  • Plant natives
  • Reuse egg cartons for seedling growth
  • Adopt a minimalist mindset and lifestyle – it’s liberating and you’ll save money
  • Purchase non-tangible gifts – dinner vouchers, experience vouchers.
  • Say no to junk mail
