How to reduce waste at home?
Even when you live frugally, there’s always a certain amount of household waste, often from food and packaging. Sorting your recyclables and organising your fridge are two ways to help reduce waste – as well as make your home a little tidier.
Get your waste sorting sorted
Sorting is easier if each type of recyclable material has a dedicated container – so less waste goes to landfill. With both freestanding and built-in options, such as HÅLLBAR series, your home can be tidier, too.
