After the festive season, many people feel they need to clean up their act, whether it be a detox, spring clean of the house or a complete decluttering operation.

The 14 Rs can act as a roadmap to help you get your home and life in order. The principles of the 14 Rs are essential parts of the waste hierarchy. The challenge lies in setting the limits where you can reduce the chances of generating waste and move towards sustainability.

Where do we start?

Respect, responsibility, refuse, reduce, rethink, reuse, repurpose, regift, repair, recycle, restore, replenish, rot and redesign. Now that’s a mouthful!

Well, we have the perfect workbook for you, making this a possible learning experience for the family.
