Counting on … day 370

Unconventional but try getting rid of your waste bins – repurpose them? – and use it as a challenge to only buy and/or use things that can be recycled or reused. It may take a little practice and a bit of research – and as a last resort you will have you dustbin. You may well find that the net result is less in your recycling bins too.

Green Christian’s blog has an item on the 7Rs – Rejoice, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Rent, borrow and share, Recycle –

Counting on …day 301

Consuming less can also mean discarding. Do a survey of your dustbin. What are you throwing out? Could any of it be recycled, repaired or reused? Do some of the things that you buy come with too much packaging? Could you shop differently? What would it take to half the amount of rubbish you produce each week? What would it take to reduce it to zero?
