The 7 R's That Can Help You Take Positive Climate Action with EcoDhaga

Updated: Jul 21, 2022

We've all heard about the 3R's - Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

At EcoDhaga, they look beyond the obvious 3Rs and try to encompass more in all that they do: Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Rethink, Reclaim, Repurpose, and Recycle. Read more about how EcoDhaga imbibes these values and how you can too with easy to implement mindset shifts.

So what are the 7R's. Let's have a look at them in detail below:

#1: Reduce

#2: Reuse

#3: Repair

#4: Rethink

#5: Reclaim

#6: Repurpose

#7: Recycle


#1 Reduce:

The first step in your sustainable journey should be refuse: saying no to buying things in a consumerist culture might be harder than we think. Reducing our waste output requires us to refuse additional purchase which have the potential to generate waste.

By thrifting wearables in excellent condition with EcoDhaga, we can reduce the resource demand for manufacturing new products, while still meeting consumer requirements of new styles to update our wardrobes.

#2 Reuse:

Indian Mom's have mastered the art of reusing every last bit of resources at home. Whether it is inventing new dishes from leftovers, or using old t-shirts as a dusting cloth. Reusing material, any material, can help keep it out of our trash for longer, while extracting maximum use from it. Prefer reusable cutlery over disposables (even if biodegradable, there is enough trash being generated, and we can shift that by small degrees).

Here, the team at EcoDhaga works diligently to pick and segregate clothes according to their utility and potential. Depending on whether it is wearable or torn, they allocate it to the best department, to reuse it in the most efficient way possible.

#3 Repair:

If something breaks, we usually finds it easy to replace it, than to take out the time and energy to repair it. Can we at least try, out of minor inconveniences, to fix it instead of throwing away valuable resources?
