The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is back for another intensive week of awareness-raising events from 21 to 29 November 2020. For its 12th edition, over 10,600 actions related to waste reduction, products reuse, materials recycling, as well as clean-ups will be carried out across 33 countries in Europe and beyond.
Each year, the EWWR selects a specific aspect of waste reduction on which to focus. For the 12th edition, the chosen theme is invisible waste, namely that waste that is out of sight to most of us because it is generated during the manufacturing of products. This theme highlights the need to prevent waste all along the life cycle of a product, challenging participants to make invisible waste visible and get to know the “real weight” they carry home after a purchase.
