Waste Reduction Tips

  • Always carry a reusable shopping bag with you - don't accept every paper bag you are offered.
  • Only buy what you need - buy more & you'll throw it out!
  • Drink tap water instead of bottled water - keep a jug in the fridge.
  • Buy loose fruit & veg not pre-packaged - weigh vegetables separately but put them all in the one bag.
