Keep your items in the loop

We throw away all sorts of items from our homes every day. But before you throw things in the bin could you repair the item or put it to another use? Or perhaps you could donate it to charity or pass it on someone who could give it a new home?

If there really is no other option, then recycling is the next best thing. When you recycle your things in the correct bin at home, you’re part of the circular economy and #InTheLoop.

If we all make small changes, we have the power to make a big difference:

  • Choose reusable products over single use
  • Look at alternatives to purchasing items such as renting or buying pre-loved
  • Try repairing items instead of throwing them away
  • Cut down the amount of plastics you use
  • Reduce the amount of food you waste
  • Recycle as much as possible

In the loop – Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle
