7 R's of Waste Management

3P Sustainability is a journey! It has many steps, including the “7 R's” of waste management: 

1. RETHINK
🛍 Rethink shopping: Buy Less, Buy Better. 

2. REFUSE
🚫 Refuse waste, including single-use plastic.

3. REDUCE
📉 Use less.

4. REUSE/REPURPOSE 
🔄 Reuse what you have, for a purpose that is the same or different. 

5. REPAIR
🛠 Fix what is broken.

6. ROT
🍂 Compost organics, like food, tree branches, and dead leaves. 

7. RECYCLE 
♻️ Convert old products into new ones, of equal value (“recycle”), greater value (“upcycle”), or less value (“downcycle”).
