We all need to do our bit to help protect our planet from the host of environmental issues it’s facing. There are many practices we can instill into our daily lives and our households that can make a difference over time.
Let’s start by focussing on waste disposal. There are certain methods which are much more eco-friendlier than others. Here’s what you can do to keep your waste management practices as green as possible:
Start using a compost bin
Make 2019 your year to get involved with composting. Compost bins are now easily available online or at your local home and garden centre, so there’s no excuse! Many local councils have now made the use of a compost bin for all food and garden waste mandatory.
Repurpose items rather than disposing of them
End the days of throwing things away without a second thought. Most things can be repurposed or ‘upcycled’, especially with a bit of creativity and DIY know-how. Repurposing is a form of recycling that could save you money, as you can turn old items into something useful that you may have otherwise spent money on.
There are lots of upcycling hacks to be found on sites such as Pinterest.
Separate your household waste before rubbish day
If you just have one big kitchen bin, it’s easy to get lazy with separating out recyclable items on rubbish day. Make things easier for yourself by getting a designated bin for your recyclables. You can now also find space efficient bins with two separate compartments, one for recyclables and one for non-recyclables.
Hire a skip to dispose of any bigger items or large volumes of waste in an eco-friendly way
If you’re dealing with a ton of waste during a house move or a construction project, it can be difficult to know how to dispose of it correctly yourself. Make things easier by getting a local skip hire company involved. They will have the knowledge to dispose of all the items in the correct way, and in the way that causes the least harm to the environment.
If we all make a combined effort to take these tips on board, it could make a significant difference to the the future of our planet.
