Toronto Zero Waste Resources List

Toronto Zero Waste Resources List

Remember to:
Reduce (ex make beans & peas from scratch)
Refuse (ex straws, single use items, packaging, plastic bags, samples...)
Reuse (ex barter, trade, second hand, free markets, yard sales, requests)
Repair (ex learn to repair clothes, repair cafes, upgrade older items)
Recycle as a last resort! (most recycling is "wish cycling". All plastic is downcycled. In the end, plastic always ends up as waste in the environment.)
