The ‘Waste-Free’ Challenge
What does waste-free living actually mean? It means avoiding unnecessary waste and reducing the need for a rubbish bin (but don’t panic, we don’t expect you to lose the bin just yet!). There are huge positive environmental impacts to producing less waste:
- Fewer resources are used as raw materials – water, oil, energy, land, etc.
- Less waste will be sent to landfill and incineration
- It sends a message to businesses: we don’t want your waste
- Councils will spend less on landfill tax.
