  • The 6 R's
    • Refuse - this means not accepting things that are not the best option for the environment. For example, is the packaging really needed?
      • REFUSE - to buy materials and products that are unsustainable.
    • Reuse - could the product have another use? Could its parts be used in other products? Is this information clearly communicated on the product? This will extend its life.
      • REUSE - the product for something else so you don't need to throw it away.
    • Repair - is the product easy to repair? This will extend its life.
      • REPAIR - the product so you don't need to throw it away.
    • Reduce -is it possible to reduce the amount of materials used? This will help to protect valuable resources.
      • REDUCE - the amount of energy and materials used to manufacture a product
  • Rethink - is there a better way to solve this problem that is less damaging to the environment?

    • RECYCLE - finally take the product apart and categorise the parts ready for being converted into another product. This uses a lot of energy.
