Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

While recycling is not a new term, many lack the know-how, reprocessing and reuse of their waste to create new products and ideas to implement in everyday life. This is not difficult at all: Many brands integrate recycling into their production processes in order to conserve resources and even small tricks make it easier to recycle personally in everyday life. We show which purchase decisions as well as everyday hacks can easily promote the concept.


Know-how for more conscious consumption

Whether interior design, fashion design or cosmetics - more and more brands are using waste products and their own production waste in the manufacturing process. For example, fashion designers use scraps of fabric to create new items of clothing, while the cosmetics industry is increasingly turning to recycled packaging. As this saves valuable resources and CO2 emissions can be reduced, it means the decision to purchase a recycled product while at the same time actively pursuing environmental protection. On the part of companies and consumers. As a part of corporate philosophy, recycling promotes sustainable, conscious consumption.

Whether shopping, cooking or in the bathroom - almost all everyday activities hide an opportunity to recycle and live sustainably through small changes. We offer tricks and expert interviews as a guide for implementation. These make it easy to reduce waste and learn how to reuse and reuse it.
