There are four ways that you can 'Buy Right' and save valuable resources that will be made into new things rather than wasted in landfill.
- Prioritise products with less packaging and reduce before you reuse or recycle.
- Choose products with packaging that can be recycled in your area.
- Try to use products that have recycled content in their packaging.
- Pick products made from recycled materials. For example, SAFE toilet tissue is made from recycled office paper. Every year, 12,000 tonnes of clean office paper is turned into 35 million rolls of SAFE toilet tissue.
