Australians dispose of about 21 million tonnes of household waste per year. Although we have made general improvements in our waste disposal habits over recent years, there is always more we can do to reduce, reuse and recycle. And in an age when avoiding rising energy consumption (and costs) is integral to reducing emissions-related impacts on climate change, many Australians are becoming more interested in exploring how to conserve their energy use. What are the best ways we can avoid creating excess waste and at the same time become more efficient with our power consumption? This book is a handy guide on how we can all live more sustainably by applying the most effective approaches to better manage our household waste and energy use. Learn how to become a sustainable consumer and reduce your carbon footprint.
