Have you seen our landfills/tips? Landfill is a huge problem and we are running out of room. The waste in landfill cannot decompose. The food and green waste rot under mountains of other rubbish. As a result greenhouse gases such as methane are released into our atmosphere. Methane gas is 25 times more potent than the carbon dioxide that comes out of a car.
Imagine everything you have ever bought. Where is it now? I'm certainly guilty of throwing plenty into landfill. Out of sight use to be blissfully out of mind. You have probably heard "there is no away". For me that sure has well and truly sunk in now!
The Green Heart Grocer aims for zero waste. This means we try our absolute hardest not to send anything to landfill. We refuse, reduce, reuse and compost, and minimise what goes into the recycling bin, because recycling is not the solution to the war on waste.
Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see what we do:) We document ALL of our waste because as a business we have a responsibility to do the right thing. We would love to see more businesses taking responsibility for their waste.
