European Week for Waste Reduction 2016: use less packaging
The 8th edition of the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) proved to be a great success once again! After months of preparations with the help of 43 EWWR Coordinators and numerous Action Developers, 12,255 actions were implemented in 32 different countries.
This year’s edition put a special focus on Packaging Waste Reduction with the slogan “Use Less Packaging”.
From 19 to 27 November 2016, European citizens were invited to participate in EWWR
actions and raise awareness about the critical issues related to waste.
Inspiring examples ranged from sustainable festivals to original
information campaigns on packaging waste reduction, swapping events and
so on. Find out more about the various actions of the 2016 edition in the EWWR Database!
