Hazardous Waste Prevention: It's Time to Detox!
Hazardous Waste Prevention: It's Time to Detox!

This year a special focus is set on the prevention of hazardous waste – the toxic and harmful substances hiding in the cleaning products, pesticides, and electronics that threaten both our health and the environment. It’s “Time to Detox” by cutting down on the use of these products, or cutting them out entirely. To help you in organising an action on this theme, we have developed some factsheets with ideas, such as how to set up a repair-cafe and how to organise a workshop on DIY cleaning products. We have also developed a brand new poster in 11 languages!

10 years of the European Week for Waste Reduction – an achievement worth celebrating!
10 years of the European Week for Waste Reduction – an achievement worth celebrating!

This year marks the 10th edition of the European Week for Waste Reduction. Over the past 10 years the EWWR has gone from strength to strength, reaching millions of people across more than 40 countries, and preventing thousands of tonnes of waste from being generated. It has tackled specific challenges such as packaging waste, reuse and repair and food waste. There has been a steady increase in the number of actions, countries, coordinators, action developers. The first edition in 2009 saw 2,672 actions implemented in 14 countries, while last year’s EWWR saw 13,410 actions organised across 30 countries!

The waste reduction campaign is spreading across Europe
The waste reduction campaign is spreading across Europe

Since the beginning of the project in 2009 the European Week for Waste Reduction has grown bigger and bigger. All of this thanks to the wonderful people involved, namely EWWR Coordinators promoting and managing the EWWR in their areas; Action Developers developing and organising their important actions; as well as the Participants joining from all over Europe and beyond. We rely on them and you to implement great actions and raise awareness on waste reduction, reuse and recycling during the EWWR. Spreading our message to as many people as possible is our mission. However, it would be much more difficult without all actors of the EWWR.

So who are they?
