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.)
