Zero waste quiz

Are you a tosser? Take our quiz and find out how zero-waste you are!

Those who follow me will know I’ve been doing a lot of work to become more zero-waste lately. To celebrate my achievements I have created this little quiz so you can find out how much of a tosser you really are. Are you a trier? A doer or a zero? Remember, trash is for tossers! 

Zero waste means:

What did we learn about being zero-waste?

  1. Reduce or eliminate plastic consumption, especially of single-use items.
  2. Replace everyday plastic items with eco-friendly alternatives and dispose of your used plastic products responsibly.
  3. Start making ecobricks with the non-recyclable plastics you use – check out www.ecobricks.org for everything you need to know about them.
  4. Raise awareness of alternative choices to your friends and family (and anyone else who will listen!)
  5. Exert your power as a consumer – you will be surprised how much power you have.
  6. Recognise that recycling is only a part of the solution and does not always represent effective waste management.
  7. Look beyond plastic to see your waste holistically, going zero-waste is much more than focusing on plastics – it’s about taking responsibility for what you use and consume.

      Thank you Lucie and oops on the ecobricks! I will correct that. When you say about plastic – it can be used for other things – is this not up-cycling? E.g. I have a spray bottle which used to have conditioner in it and I use it to put my homemade spray vinegar cleaner in it. To me, this is an example of up-cycling plastic to avoid it going to landfill. Perhaps it’s better described as re-use or repurposing? I get that recycling is essentially a false economy so to me, re-using/repurposing plastic things into other useful things is better. What do you think?
