This week in Ours to Protect, Orla looks at how you can reuse thanks to some independent businesses in the South East.

Packaging comes with the products we buy for our homes and businesses. It protects them during transport, keeps them fresh and provides product information. Once the products are unpacked, the packaging become waste.

We often hear the terms reduce, reuse, recycle, minimising the amount of waste we produce, reusing products as much as we can, and recycling any materials that can be used for a new purpose.

Well, we’re going to look at the reuse packaging in our daily lives that can help contribute to less waste in Ireland.
