Stop Waste – Protect Nature Challenge #31

Don’t waste food, water from the tap, fuels, electricity, clothing, plastics, paper and wood products, furniture, cleaning products or any other resource. Buy only what you need. Borrow, buy used and rent to avoid waste. Check out the "9 Rs" of sustainable living. Wait 30 days before buying a luxury item to be sure you need it. Say no to single-use plastics. Consider the quality and source of products. Rethink everything you purchase and bring into your life.

The root of most modern environmental issues is human over-consumption. Now is the time to change our consumer habits, stop waste and reconnect with nature.

Let’s do this together
