The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) runs from 19–27 November 2016. The EWWR seeks to promote awareness-raising activities about sustainable resource and waste management. This year’s edition is focused on packaging waste reduction.
Packaging waste linked to current consumption trends is problematic, especially when such waste is due to the unnecessary over-packaging of products. Organisers are encouraging a wide range of audiences (public authorities, private companies, civil society as well as citizens themselves) to get involved. The 2015 edition of the event, reviewed in this video, was held under the patronage of the European Parliament. Interested parties should register their event before 4 November 2016.
