How Can I Reduce Waste at Home?

Here are some ideas to help you and your family reduce the amount of waste that you produce at home:

  • Make more foods at home instead of buying takeaway or convenience foods.
  • Make gifts or cards for family and friends, instead of buying them.
  • Grow your own vegetables and flowers.
  • Buy second-hand books instead of new ones
  • Repair clothes, toys, and appliances rather than replacing them with new ones.
  • Hire, share and borrow things, rather than buying new ones, where possible.
  • Shop more carefully:
    - use a shopping list only buy the things you really need
    - avoid goods that have too much packaging
    - don't buy too many disposable products, such as tissues and nappies
    - buy products that are strong, and will last you a long time
    - take your own shopping bags to the supermarket
