A few suggestions for reducing waste

  • When shopping, use a basket rather than disposable bags.
  • Choose products with returnable packaging. A returnable bottle can be reused fifty times.
  • Buy eco-refills or family-size products.
  • Avoid products with excess packaging.
  • Avoid pre-packaged food: instead buy loose food items and sliced-to-order portions. This helps you avoid both excess packaging and buying too much food.
  • Use sustainable products such as rechargeable batteries.
  • Repair your defective items instead of replacing them.
  • Try to use recycled or easily recyclable products.
