Avoidance is the best way to reduce waste. When you are considering purchasing a new item, ask yourself:

  • Do you really need to buy that product?
  • How will you dispose of the packaging?
  • What will you do with the old one?
  • Can it be composted?
  • Can someone else use it?

Avoid, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle - It all starts with your shopping habits.
