Zero Waste Discussion

On July 4, in line with our Questers Goes Green campaign, we’ve invited the inspiring Danita Zarichinova from “Za Zemiata” to discuss with us the main issues with waste, what are the possible solutions and how to reduce it in order to achieve “zero waste”. Here are some of the tips Danita shared, and if you also support the idea of sustainable living, you could try applying:

  • Reduce the plastic. Bring your own cup for coffee in the coffee shop, use a reusable food container and use your fabric bag when shopping.
  • Reuse. Be creative - could the old computer be turned into an art shelf or the bunch of old t-shirts you are planning to throw away become your new bathroom rug?
  • Recycle.  1 recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 3 hours. It’s worth it to try throwing the next plastic bottle in the recycled bin.
