Permaculture Principle #6 – Produce no waste

Producing no waste simply means looking at things that might be considered waste and seeing if there is a way to reuse that waste in another manner such as an input to a different system or to eliminate the processes that causes the waste to be created. There are several ways to, if not eliminate waste, then to reduce waste. This could be anything from repairing an item instead of throwing it out and buying a new one, going without when something breaks, buying used and secondhand items, or making your own items.
