What Is Zero Waste?
What is Zero Waste?
Zero waste is basically waste prevention, with the aim of preventing waste ending up in landfill, incinerators or our oceans.
Sounds simple doesn’t it? Although anyone can reduce their waste with a little extra thought and care, really reducing your waste takes time, effort and thinking outside the box.
How many of us can say hand on heart that their waste bins are not overfilling a few days before the bin men are due to arrive? We live in such a throw away society, that we often think very little about the rubbish we put in our bins.
If we all put a little thought into this, we would likely reduce our landfill, and if we all put a lot of thought into it, we would help our environment, wildlife and oceans. Did you know that 70-80% of all household waste is organic matter which can be composted and turned into soil, thought provoking isn’t it?
The small changes we make today - will make the greatest of changes for our future.
