Prevention Thematic Days 2015
Dematerialisation: doing more with less!
The Prevention Thematic Days 2015 will focus on dematerialisation which stands for using less or no material to deliver the same level of functionality to the user. To highlight this topic and to encourage and support EWWR Action Developers to implement actions around this topic, a number of tools have been developed.
3Rs and a clean-up
The actions implemented in the EWWR are addressing the “3Rs”: Reduce waste, Reuse products, Recycle material. The “3Rs” represent the options which should be considered first when elaborating a waste management strategy.
