Prevention Thematic Days 2014
Stop food Waste!
The Prevention Thematic Days 2014 will focus on the issue of food waste and how to prevent it. To highlight this topic and to encourage and support EWWR Action Developers to implement actions around this issue, 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.
Each year, the most outstanding actions are rewarded with an EWWR award.
