5 EASY STEPS TO REDUCE WASTE

1. Stop unwanted mail

 To stop receiving unsolicited advertising mail, contact the Mailing Preference Service and Royal Mail.

 Be aware when giving your name and address; ensure you indicate you don't want your details to be used for future promotions or passed to other marketing agencies.

 
Think before you shop

Before you shop, think about how you could reduce your waste. For example, you could buy things with less packaging, or second-hand items.

Can you buy something that will last longer rather than a disposable item? Rechargeable batteries are cheaper than disposables, and they can be used again and again - and using real crockery and cutlery for your parties instead of disposable ones can make a real difference.

To avoid taking home more carrier bags, choose reusable shopping bags: keep them in the car boot or pop a folded cotton bag in your handbag or pocket so you always have one to hand.

3 Your rubbish is another person’s treasure!

Contact your local Furniture Re-use Network - they distribute unwanted furniture and household goods to those in need. Or advertise your old furniture in your local paper or on websites such as Freecycle or Freegle.

Having a clear out? Donate good quality clothing, books and unwanted gifts to charity shops. Alternatively use the clothing banks at your local recycling centre.

4 Avoid wasting food

Every year in the UK we throw away £12.5 billion worth of good food, costing the average family almost £60 a month.
