Tips for Reducing Waste

Reduce - Buy only what you need. If you buy too much food, it'll spoil before you get the chance to eat it. Use reusable shopping bags - always carry a bag with you, just in case you need one. Find out how to compost and compost food scraps and use them to grow more food. Avoid purchasing products with excessive packaging.

Reuse Shop second-hand and at consignment stores or consider re-selling your ‘stuff’ before throwing it out.  Utilize sites like Kijiji and Ebay for buying and selling.

Recycle Look for public recycling bins when you're out at the park or shopping centre. Request recycling bins when you find a business that doesn’t have one. Try all waste disposal options, and at last, throw it out.

Examine your buying and disposal habits:

Do you choose durable goods over disposables?
Do you bring your own reusable bags and carry a reusable mug with you?
Do you separate materials for reuse, recycle and compost?
