If you answered "Don't even produce waste" CONGRATULATIONS! It’s the correct answer!

Waste prevention means reducing the amount of waste at its source; for instance, when you are shopping, you should choose products with less packaging and you should only buy products you actually need, thus preventing waste production and saving money.

On the other hand, you can also prevent waste production after you buy the product, by giving materials a new life, i. e., reusing them.

Thus, the best waste is that which doesn't become waste!

Waste Prevention can be defined as a group of measures taken in order to avoid that a substance, material or product becomes waste. These measures aim to reduce:

  • The amount of waste produced by reusing and extending the products' service life;
  • The harmful impact of waste production and treatment on the environment and human health;
  • The hazardous content of materials and products
