Waste Saving Tips 

  • Start a compost heap at home, discard all of your biodegradable materials from the kitchen in the heap, including grass cuttings, leaves from the garden and any garden cuttings, this will all make for excellent compost
  • Start an earthworm farm, use off-cuts from the kitchen, egg shells and cardboard to feed your worms. The juices your earthworms excrete make excellent organic fertiliser.

  • Avoid excessive packaging, much of the packaging on products in stores is unnecessary
