Consumption & Waste

Our focus is to provide practical solutions for reducing consumption and waste. Our team will work closely with other CCAT groups to provide education and support to assist individuals, businesses, and municipal government to shift towards sustainable practices.

We promote  a 7R approach rather than the traditional 3 Rs.  Rethink / Refuse / Reduce / Rot / Repair /Reuse /Recycle.  AND a transition to a  Circular Economy. This is a a way of doing business that extracts as much value as possible from resources by recycling, repairing, reusing, repurposing, or refurbishing products and materials—eliminating waste and greenhouse gas emissions at the design stage.

Watch for more on this over the coming months.

Ask yourself:  “What can I do?” Every lifestyle adjustment we as individuals can make can make a positive difference. Start simply. Your efforts will be a game changer. And if you are already a 7R practitioner, share your ideas.
