A sister campaign – Let’s Clean Up Europe!

While promoting the waste prevention, we do not forget of the importance of clean-up actions to collect, sort and recycle the waste that ended up in our environment. For this, the EWWR sister campaign Let’s Clean Up Europe! is active all over Europe by implementing clean-up actions.
