Everything you throw away has a carbon footprint, so reduce waste at home and lower your emissions.

The less there is going in your bin or your recycling, the less you’ll be adding to your carbon footprint.

In this section, you’ll find practical ways to reduce waste, which should also save you money overall and protect the environment in other ways, too.

Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

You’ve probably heard of the ‘waste hierarchy’. It’s a way of looking at waste that starts with reducing it in the first place, before thinking about reusing and recycling things you don’t need any more. We totally agree, and you’ll┬ánotice that our guides focus on refuse and reduce, with a healthy dose of reuse!
