How to make sustainable choices in everyday life
Identifying ways to reduce waste and conserve resources
Understanding the impact of human actions on the environment
A zero-waste lifestyle means you opt for sustainable and reusable alternatives and strive to send as little as possible to landfills.
This implies replacing as much as possible with reusable products, including clothing, food and drink packaging, and hygiene products, composting what you can, and then only sending a small part of waste to landfills.
Zero-waste is impossible, but the visionary term is not about perfection. It's about making a conscious effort to make better choices.
The goal of zero waste is to move to a circular economy, which is where rubbish has no existence. Instead of discarding valuable resources, creating a circular economy proposes reusing items or sending them to be recycled so they can be used fully in the system.
A landfill site or rubbish dump is a site for dumping waste materials.
The success of any zero waste goal relies on the education and participation of communities and business organisations.
Start by looking through your trash and recycling bins to see what you're throwing out the most.
Paper produces about 60-80% of waste. Think before you print. Consider pull-printing as 30% of printing is never collected from the printer.
Reduce plastic waste
Set up an effective bin system with clear labelling to ensure your staff correctly recycle waste.
Educate your staff. Recycling is complicated. Each waste management company uses its own system and has different recycling rules.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
