Our current consumption of resources and throwaway habit is not sustainable.
We are working to reduce waste in Merton through championing reusing, refilling, repairing and recycling. We want to see a shift towards a more circular economy where resources are conserved, valued and kept in the loop.
Simple changes in behaviour and the decisions we make each day can have a big impact. Act now to protect what you love.
Our projects & campaigns
I wish we could extend our ingenuity to encourage a mass step change – reducing and reusing at a rate that surpasses landfill and incineration.
With the volatility of recyclable materials often making single-use materials cheaper for manufacturers to produce will we get to a stage quick enough to realise that the environment is worth more than money? As ever I will keep my fingers crossed for humankind."
