prevention:
a new approach

We all generate huge amounts of waste, every minute of every day. It’s time to take a new approach and think carefully about what we buy. Positive choices about packaging and airmiles can reduce waste and climate impacts. Rather than always buying new, let’s try to repair, reuse and upcycle to make the most of get the best value from what we already have. It makes sense for your environment, your local community and your budget.
