Zero Waste Week ready for seventh year

Zero Waste Week, a national waste awareness campaign, has kicked off.

Rachelle Strauss

The week-long event, which is now in its seventh year and organised by Rachelle Strauss (left), is encouraging people and organisations ‘to do one more thing’ to help reduce landfill waste and save money.

Some of the suggested activities that people are being encouraged to take part in include not using plastic bags, packing zero waste lunches, taking old clothes to a recycling bank, cutting down on food waste and repairing something instead of replacing it.

People are also being encouraged to swap recipes containing leftovers to cut down on food waste.

These recipes, such as uses for stale bread, are shared online along with other tips including advice on how to reuse plastic pots and containers.
