Reduce, reuse, recycle

Making small changes to our habits around waste and the things we use can make a big difference to our environment, protecting the earth’s precious natural resources.

Reducing the amount we consume in our lives helps the environment and can save us money.

Amending our purchasing habits, looking at plastic and food waste, how we travel and how we use energy are important ways of reducing our impact on the environment.

Reusing things lessens our negative impact on the environment. Upcycling clothes, furniture and more. Fixing things that are broken. Considering what we throw away and whether someone else might want to swap or use it. Here are some practical ideas to consider introducing to your life.

Recycling helps reduce the amount of rubbish we send to landfill. It conserves resources by processing old items into new ones.

It also protects the environment by reducing the need to extract, refine and process new raw materials, which creates substantial air and water pollution.
