Waste diversion: Why it matters and how you can make a difference

Today, we’re delving into a topic that is close to our heart – waste diversion. As a not-for-profit social enterprise waste diversion is our core purpose.

As we navigate a world grappling with the challenges of landfill scarcity, plastic pollution in our oceans, and the toll on our environment, it’s important to understand why waste diversion matters and how each of us can be a part of the solution.

At RRA’s Reviva Reuse Shops,  we give items a second chance at life, and you, our valued community, play a pivotal role in this mission. By choosing to shop secondhand, including at Reviva, you actively divert items from landfill, whether it’s furniture, clothing, hardware or electronics – creating a win-win scenario for both your wallet and the environment.

So, how can you personally make a positive impact on waste diversion? Here are three simple yet powerful actions:

1. Shop secondhand:

Opt for reused items instead of new ones. You’ll be amazed at the treasures waiting to be discovered in the world of secondhand shopping.

2. Donate don’t dump:

Rather than discarding gently used items, consider donating them to places like Reviva Reuse Shops. Your pre-loved items might bring joy to someone else, reducing waste and promoting a sustainable lifestyle.

3. Upcycle and DIY:

Unleash your creativity! Transform old items into new and exciting creations, not only minimising waste but also expressing your unique style in a fun and sustainable manner.

Every small action contributes to a significant change. By supporting waste diversion and Reviva, you are actively participating in a movement towards a more sustainable future, creating a great collective impact. Together, we can pave the way for a greener, more sustainable future. Thank you for being part of the waste diversion revolution, supporting #WASTE2WAGES and Resource Recovery Australia.
