Fostering awareness: exploring the environmental impact of packaging
The 15th edition of the European Week for Waste Reduction seeks to raise awareness about the strong environmental impact of packaging, promoting a more sustainable consumption and production behavior. The EWWR is focusing on packaging for the second time in its history (the first time was during the 2016 edition). Even after 7 years, this topic keeps being key in terms of waste produced, which has not been reduced but pushed forward with the increase of the e-commerce sector.
