What used to be defined as waste or garbage is today valuable raw material or a useful resource for new production. Waste and garbage is nothing else than a valuable resource in the wrong place. Almost everything can be reused or recycled. The key, if it is possible, is to sort waste in the right way right from the beginning. The wrong classification of waste can result in the impossibility of reuse or recycling. By recycling the need for landfills decreases which diminishes the risk of soil pollution. Landfilling is also expensive, and while that cost is not directly reflected in the price of products we are still paying for it through taxes to the municipality. However, from the beginning, it would be best of all to avoid buying, and thereby unnecessarily creating waste. What do we mean by buying waste? How often do we buy plastic bags and packaging which end up in the wastebasket as soon as we get home? In order to facilitate the classification of content and of the packaging of the various products which can be bought at Nature's Market, various recycling categories are shown for each product. Here in the  ‘Recycling Products’ department you can also find various aids for recycling and reuse.
