How can we be more circular in our everyday lives?

We can use lots of the Rs in our waste hierarchy above to inspire more circularity in our everyday actions.

  • Do we really need all of the items that we buy?
  • Say no to single use packaging.
  • Go for second hand and refurbished before purchasing brand new.
  • Reduce the impact of tech by keeping it for longer (phones & laptops).
  • Keep things in use for as long as possible.
  • Be good at using your water bottle, coffee cup and lunch box.
Repair & Refurbish
  • Many household appliances can be repaired, they often don’t need to be replaced.
  • Consider purchasing refurbished products. They often still have a warranty and can save you a fortune!
  • Get creative and give something a second life.
  • Use coffee grounds in the garden.
  • Only when none of the above options are possible.
