1. Shop Secondhand!
Shopping secondhand is a fantastic way to reduce landfill waste. Each time you buy something pre-loved, you increase that items lifespan and stop it from being discarded in waste. You can buy so many different things secondhand too!
Why not check out Furniturelink Surrey for pre-loved furniture? Or enjoy browsing through charity shops in your local area for some high quality secondhand clothes?

2. Recycle, Recycle, Recycle!
Correctly recycling your household waste is an excellent way to do your part in the fight against landfill waste. Why not segregate your recycling into different categories (plastics, paper, glass, cardboard) and take a trip to your local recycling center?
Your recycling could even be reused and turned into something else, for example, pens made out of recycled plastic bottles!
