Four categories for a livable Münster
We have selected four categories for the competition that play a particularly important role for the waste-free Münster of the future. This starts with waste prevention, because the best waste is ultimately that which is not created in the first place. Secondhand and non-packaging stores, food rescue stations or swap and repair exchanges: all of these help to make our consumption more sustainable. Upcycling, i. e. the transformation and reuse of objects, is a key to a circular economy in which significantly fewer resources are consumed than today.
To recover recyclable materials, you first have to separate waste properly. Your ideas for doing this are just as welcome as ideas for recovering valuable materials, for example by turning organic waste into humus. And because cleanliness is part of being waste-free and we all want Münster to be clean, we would also like to encourage your ideas on this.
