Reducing is the first and most effective of the 3R. It means reducing your consumption or buying less. At sustainable Biosolutions we promote reducing water consumption in domestic as well as industrial operations.
Using metal flasks instead of plastic water bottles, buying used goods, mending clothes instead of buying new ones and consuming less electricity are all examples of ways you can reduce in your own life.
Reusing avoids creating waste rather than trying to recycle it once it’s already there. Sustainable Biosolutions designs systems for reusing treated sewage water for toilet flushing and gardening.
Composting, using jars to store beverages or leftover food, and trading or selling used plastics items rather than throwing them out are all examples of ways you can reuse the waste products around you.
Recycling extracts valuable materials from items that might otherwise be considered trash and turns them into new products. We promote solid waste segregation, recycling and biogas/compost production from organic waste.
As a consumer, you can help recycling process by segregating waste and give recyclable waste to recycling agencies, recycling by purchasing products made from recycled material, such as toilet paper made from recycled pulp.
