5 Ways to Reduce Waste And Your Climate Impact

Presented by:

The City of Toronto is working towards reducing waste by achieving a circular economy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The City manages around 850,000 tonnes of waste every year, which requires money and energy and takes up valuable landfill space. To solve this problem, we need to work together to reduce the amount of waste we produce and minimize our climate impact.

Practicing sustainable consumption will keep items out of landfills and help reduce your climate impact. Here’s how you can do more with less.
