Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle

Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle

What is a circular economy? Why is it so important? And just how can this be implemented into Romanian society? Fulbright Visiting Lecturer Sarah D’Antoni informed the students of Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, in Iasi, just how they can change their habits to create a more sustainable Romania. Sarah explained that, in a linear economy, we extract, produce, distribute, buy, and throw away; a line to a landfill. However, we can curve this line into a circle by implementing the 5 R's; Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle. When we implement these habits, we go from extraction, production, distribution, buying, reusing, repairing, and finally to recycling and re-extraction. The students were guided through a recycling quiz, true or false questions, tips on how to make small changes towards a zero-waste lifestyle, and where and what they can recycle in their own city. A prize of a stainless steel straw was given to the most active student. A big thank you to all participants, organizer Mariah Ligas, and lecturer Sarah D’Antoni.
Keep up the great work and remember, “Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle”!
