WASTE AND RECYCLING

Reducing our waste is great for the environment and will save you money too. Buying only what you need, avoiding over-packaged items, reducing water use and recycling and composting as much as possible will all help. Install water butts or hippos, skill-share and "mend or make" rather than "throw away and buy a new one".
