SustainableQATAR challenges you to test your sustainability knowledge and to inspire and motivate people of all ages in Qatar to act.

We are all familiar with Reduce-Reuse-Recycle. Unfortunately, since that phrase was introduced, most of the effort seems to have gone to the practice of last resort - Recycling. There are at least six other ways to avoid sending material to the landfill before recycling it. These have been captured in the Nine R’s, found via the link below. You may be surprised!

Elite and Al Suwaidi are two Qatar organizations that do what?

  1. Take clothing donations
  2. Teach classes on making crafts using recycled materials
  3. Sort and recycle a variety of materials
  4. Use recycled paper as raw material
