The Earth is our most precious resource, and in recent years, most people have seemed to have forgotten that treating it kindly is essential and required to help keep each person moving forward. In a new write-up by Hannah Scholes, she provides a few helpful tips on waste reduction.

- Meaningful waste reduction requires changes to your lifestyle and your purchasing behaviour.
- Before you buy anything, ask yourself if you really need it and how long you expect to use it.
- Choose products with less or no packaging, which is often available when buying bulk products.
