|Reduce, Reuse and Recycle|
The UK produces more than 434 million tonnes of waste every year – this rate of rubbish generation would be enough to fill the Royal Albert Hall to the rafters every two hours year after year. In terms of household waste, picture a herd of 5 million African Elephants and that is the amount UK homes produce each year (30 million tonnes).
There is no point in denying it; we do live in an extremely wasteful society, but by reducing the amount we consume, reusing items whenever and wherever possible and ensuring that all items that are recyclable are recycled then we can limit our own impact upon the environment.
Welcome to the world of the ‘3 R’s’…

‘Much of the stuff you throw away ends up in landfills, where it creates methane – a greenhouse gas that is 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide’.
