The Waste Pyramid is a useful tool for managing and reducing waste. It outlines a hierarchy of waste management practices that prioritize reduction, reuse, and recycling over disposal.

By following the principles of the Waste Pyramid, individuals and organizations can lower their environmental impact and contribute to a more sustainable future.

To lower your impact, start by reducing your consumption, reusing items as much as possible, and properly disposing of waste through recycling and composting.
