Have you ever thought about how much litter you produce? According to research, the average person in the United Arab Emirates produces 2.7kg of waste a day. This is a vast amount of refuse, and the region is actually one of the world’s highest producers per capita.
Thankfully, by taking a few simple actions, you will be able to significantly reduce your waste and help you to live sustainably and greener.
One of the first areas to focus on is at home. You should try to reduce the amount of plastic you use, reducing things such as one-use bottles, ziplock bags, and items with excessive packaging. Instead, you can use reusable bottles and things such as beeswax wraps or reusable sandwich bags to lower your plastic consumption.
Of course, living a zero-waste life is not just at home. You can also reduce your waste throughout your work day. Taking your reusable water bottle with you will ensure you do not need to buy plastic bottles and takeaway coffee.
You can also reduce your waste by opting to use PDF and digital signatures rather than continuously printing things off.
Finally, to ensure a greener and more sustainable future, you should also focus on teaching your kids at an early age. Set an example by turning off the lights every time you leave the room and teaching them the importance of reusing and recycling.
