The best way to tackle the problem of waste is to reduce the amount we produce. Some tips on how to reduce your waste include:

Reuse and Repair

We've all heard the phrase 'one man's trash is another man's treasure'- many of the things we throw away haven't always reached the end of their useful life. Before throwing them away, consider the below tips for what to do with them.

  • Choose to repair your furniture and appliances before buying new

  • Love Your Clothes (external link) - get more out of your existing clothes by getting repairs and alterations

  • Donate to charity shops, sell online and buy second hand- online marketplaces like Facebook and Gumtree are popular sites for selling or giving away furniture, or buying second hand
