The best way to reduce the environmental impacts of waste is to prevent it in the first place. Storing food well, planning your meals, shopping smart and avoiding excessive packaging are all ways to prevent waste. Many items that we throw away could also be re-used, and others can be recycled for raw materials.
Get on the move and cycle, walk or use public transport!
You'll improve your health and lessen your impact on the environment. Remember that for each litre of fuel burnt in a car engine, more than 2.5 kg of CO2 is released into the atmosphere.
