6 R’s FOR ZERO WASTE
Living a zero-waste lifestyle needs a change in one’s way of consuming products and the will to save the planet in our own little way. There are 6 R’s, a maxim you can follow in living a zero-waste life.
A change in perspective is needed for this undertaking. In purchasing new products, rethink if it is sustainable, reusable, recyclable, or overall friendly to the environment.
Don’t throw it out if it's broken. If it can be fixed, then repair it. If this is not viable then recycle its parts. There is still value in things like discarded bottles and paper.
Refuse single-use plastics. This is a harmful pollutant to the environment and will increase demand and production if we make a habit of buying these types of products.
This is an important aspect of zero waste. Reuse plastics that can still serve their purpose repeatedly.
Minimize overall waste not only in your home but in the community as well. Promulgate a zero-waste lifestyle throughout your peers even in just little aspects of it such as the refuse of plastics.
Allow your waste to be processed for repurposing and thereby producing no waste. This is also an important aspect of zero waste.
At The EcoFairy, our goal is to help you build a more sustainable life by offering you a line of reusable products. We offer products that last and that will help you reduce the amount of plastic you use.
