Actions to reduce, re-use and recycle

One of the ways to protect resources, save money and be kinder to the planet is by making changes to how we consume things and reduce waste. 

Cutting the amount of waste we throw away, together with re-using or recycling what we already have means

  • Less waste ending up in nature and the marine environment
  • Reduced need to use raw materials
  • Fewer greenhouse gas emissions

It can also save you money, and supports local businesses offering re-use and repair services.

You can take action in lots of ways - and every action counts.
