The sound ecology: the 5R rule

The 5R: The GoodPlanet foundation

Explanations of the 5R:

  • ❌ Refuse: say no to what we don't need
  • πŸ“‰ Reduce: only buy the needed quantities
  • β™» Reuse: avoid buying new things and prefer second-hand items
  • 🌍 Return to earth: compost the organic matters
  • β™» Recycle: last option if none of the other is available
