Let's sort out waste initiative

New Zealand is facing massive challenges when it comes to waste.

For starters, New Zealand has been identified as one of the most wasteful countries in the developed world with Kiwis producing over 3.6kg of waste per person every day. That's 734kg per year! But it doesn’t have to stay that way, we can all do our part to help reduce the waste generated, live more sustainable lives and look after our country.

In an effort to help people reduce their waste, the councils in the Wellington region have partnered to help support our residents to reduce their waste. Let’s sort out waste is a website about educating our residents to think differently about waste, from purchase, to storage and transport, to reuse and re-purpose so that we can work towards living waste free lives.

There are lots of  tips, tricks and inspiration  to help reduce waste around your home. Help others on their journey by contributing your own tips and tricks to help your community. Not only will you be doing your part to look after your country, but by making some quick and easy changes to your everyday life you could also save yourself time and money.
