Championing the 5 R’s of Waste Management

Our consumption habits, reliance on plastic packaging, and disposable culture are unsustainable. Overflowing waste management systems struggle under the burden of our consumption, signaling a need for change.

A beacon of hope in this struggle is the adoption of the 5 Rs: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose, and Recycle. This hierarchy prioritizes minimizing waste and encourages us to utilize products and materials to their maximum potential before they become waste.
