Waste Action Maleny

Waste is a huge problem for our planet, and while change needs to come from governments and big business, we each need to do our part as consumers to reduce waste.

Sometimes we think, “I’m just one person, how can I make a difference?”

By making mindful choices such as refusing to buy goods with unnecessary packaging, we can reduce waste and create change. 

Here are a few things you can do today:

• Take your reusable water bottle with you to avoid purchasing bottled water

• Use a keep cup for your takeaway coffee

• Buy food mindfully to reduce food waste (a huge contributor to greenhouse gases)

We can all do our part by rethinking what we buy, refusing packaging, consuming less, reusing, repairing and recycling.
