It is no secret that we live in a ‘throw away’ culture, why repair when you can simply buy new? The problem with this mindset is that we are starting to drown in our waste! Rather than accept this new way of living there are a group of people out there that are trying to tackle the problem head on.

Zero Waste it is a lifestyle philosophy where the person consciously chooses to reduce, or better still, eliminate waste completely from their lives. This can be achieved by applying the 5 R’s… Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Rot & Recycle.

In the past, we’ve been told by experts that the only way to reduce the amount of waste the human race creates is to recycle everything. This, unfortunately, is not the answer! If we are every going to win the war on waste then the first stages should be to refuse & reduce not recycle.  

Recycling costs money and uses a lot of energy and should, therefore, be a last resort if you cannot apply one of the other R’s first.

15 of the Best Blogs to Follow About Zero WasteZero Waste is not a new concept it is how we all used to live. Packaging, especially plastic packaging, is a fairly modern concept and most of the time completely unnecessary.

Does a cucumber really need to be wrapped in plastic?  How many times last year did you buy a product that has required a degree in engineering just to get it open?

We live in such a fast-paced world that we can often overlook the amount of waste we are producing. By becoming aware of our rubbish we can start to look for ways to reduce the amount we produce.

Zero Waste is not something that one can achieve overnight. It’s a process of trial and error. A lot of zero wasters suggest starting with just one thing. Perhaps you could get you milk delivered in a returnable glass bottle? Or start buying your fruit and veg from a local greengrocer.
