Your Role in a productís life cycle

Although it is up to companies to decide how they make a product, it is up to you to decide how it is used. How you choose, use and dispose of a product is an important part of its life cycle. It is no use making a product from recyclable materials if it just ends up in landfill. Your role in a product’s life cycle is to ensure that:

  • before you buy anything, you make sure that it is the best product for your needs.
  • you support companies that are environmentally responsible and buy products that won’t harm the environment.
  • you recycle or reuse the product and packaging.
  • or, if its not recyclable, you make sure that it is disposed of safely
  • you use the product properly and efficiently
  • you tell companies how their products could be improved. If you think that some products have too much packaging or could be more useful or more environmentally friendly, contact the company and tell them.
