Minimizing waste is the most important thing you can do to preserve resources, which in turn protects the environment and the climate. Here are some ways to minimize waste in your everyday life:
  • use reusable packaging
  • put a "no-junk-mail" sticker on your letterbox
  • use canvas shopping bags or wicker baskets
  • buy refillable products
  • drink tap water
  • compost food waste
  • donate your old clothing
  • share / borrow tools
  • make use of swap or recycling sites
  • give away used furniture and household items
  • repair things instead of throwing them out
