Zero Waste



“Zero Waste starts by refusing things”

You might wonder: Where to start? How do I stop my garbage can from overflowing?

The 5 R’s

So here are Béa’s very helpful 5 R’s!

  1. refuse

  2. reduce

  3. reuse (+repair)

  4. recycle

  5. rot

(In this order!)

Zero Waste starts by refusing things. Whatever you still have and use you should reduce to save resources. Substitute disposables for reusable options, and instead of tossing things repair them! Separate what little trash you have left and make sure to recycle. Compost what’s left and let it rot.
