According to the waste hierarchy, the primary aim is to produce as little waste as possible. The longer life length of an object, the less waste will occur. This means that you should use things as long as possible and avoid buying new ones.

Flea markets and help organizations, such as the Red Cross, the Star of Hope, the Salvation Army and UFF receive useful items and clothing. On Facebook you can also find groups where you can donate superfluous stuff.
