Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
To help tackle the climate emergency and cut down on waste that is blighting the natural environment, we need to reduce our unsustainable consumption and re-use items. When that is not possible, we need to recycle as effectively as possible. It’s not always easy to know how to, so our guide to home recycling should help. For all those tricky items that need to be recycled elsewhere check here.
This guide will help you find local stores, markets and delivery services that offer and even specialise in plastic free purchasing.
