Reducing, Reusing, Recycling
Fred’s One Stop Shopping – Doing what we can for the environment!
Did you know that according to the Bureau of Statistics, every Australian contributes approximately two tons of waste each year – that mixture made up of both household and industrial waste generated by the things we buy or use.
Did you know that it is becoming increasingly difficult and hugely expensive to find new refuse tips for the volume of waste currently being generated?
Waste disposal has subsequently become a massive problem for both community and governments alike but did you know, that by minimizing waste, by avoiding and reducing waste, then reusing and recycling our waste, we can reduce waste by up to 50%?
As astonishing as it might seem, when we all do our part, the 50% can become reality!
At Fred’s One Stop, we do our part by:
- Giving any unused bread, bread rolls and vegetable leaves to farmers for farm use
- Giving back to local suppliers our empty polystyrene boxes
- Providing customers with an opportunity to purchase Fred’s One Stop environmentally friendly shopping bags
- Ensuring that boxes are compacted any ready to be taken away for recycling
