It’s National Recycling Week from 8 – 14 November, so you might find it strange if we told you that recycling is one of the last best things to do with your waste...

Recycling is important, but it is only one option in reducing waste. 

Here are some of the other options:

  • Refuse – single use plastics and unnecessary packaging, better yet, BYO!
  • Reduce – food waste through composting, chickens, not buying too much fresh food and not eating it
  • Reuse – gift, donate or sell
  • Repurpose – upcycle

Speaking of upcycle, if you scored a nice piece of furniture or a have a knack finding gems in tip shops or op shops, why not enter the Planet Ark’s Upcycling Competition – Save our Furniture?
