Learn from Zero Waste at home practices
Where the recycling cycle has 3 R’s with Reduce, Reuse and Recycling most Zero Waste influencers start with the extra R of Refuse. Where composting is possible even an extra R of Rot is added. Then it becomes 5 R’s with Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot.
