Zero Waste Week 2021



WHAT IS ZERO WASTE WEEK?

You may have seen some posts over the last week tagged as #ZeroWasteWeek

It is an awareness week that started in 2008 to encourage people who want to reduce waste, reuse and recycle as much as possible. There are a lot of things we can do as individuals and as businesses to reduce waste.

Some of the top tips include:

  • Using #reusable packing when shopping in stores (like us) that sell loose goods (not pre-packaged).

  • Making use of #recycling facilities to recycle what you throw out.

  • Using up food leftovers - turning them into new meals - leftover roast lamb makes a great curry! Also, the carcass of a roast chicken can be made into a delicious stock (and you can use up old veg in this too!).
