European waste reduction week

The European Waste Reduction Week (16 November - 24 November 2019) is planned for university citizens in connection with the University of Pécs as follows.

This year, we are urging everyone to keep the eyes open, discover and resolve situations in which we can prevent and reduce the amount of waste. Whether it's in our immediate environment, workplace, school or the roads that connect them. After all, if for some reason we have already given out money and bought it (not because of our needs, but because we need it), then do not throw it in the trash. Through reuse, donation, or even "rebirth", it lives on, the materials remain in the cycle of the economy, thereby depriving our already over-consumed Earth of new environmental elements.

Follow 8R's guidance.

8 passwords behind which lies an environmentally conscious man. Learn as much as you can and remember these thoughts if you want to shop or decide the fate of an object.

8R above all else!

  1. Reduce: Reduce! Use less materials, objects, resources. The baby's beautiful!
  2. Replace: Replace your product with a more environmentally conscious solution and service. For example, rent instead of shopping.
  3. Refuse: Reject! You don't have to accept what we disagree with, such as a flyer, a plastic bag, or a free promotional gift!
  4. Recycle: Collect selectively and utilize! Use recycled material or think about it when you make something: what happens to it when it becomes waste?
  5. Reuse: Use it again! Could the product become redundant be used for something else? For example, use parts or give it other functionality?
  6. Repair: Fix it! If something is worth fixing or having to fix, extend the life of the product!
  7. Rot: Compost, collect separately, use it locally! You can compost everywhere and it feels really good to put it in the ready compost later!
  8. Rethink: Think again! Is there no better solution to a particular problem that is less burdensome to the environment?

+1: Repeat...: And start all over again!
