Let's Clean Up Europe 2016

This year Let’s Clean Up Europe took place on 6-8 May 2016. It is one of the biggest campaigns against littering with the aim of cleaning up our environment but also raising awareness on the problem. With more than 5,800 clean-up actions in 21 countries all over Europe and beyond, the third edition of Let’s Clean Up Europe (LCUE) was again a big success!

Clean-ups are needed because every year millions of tonnes of litter end up in the environment. In 2016, thanks to LCUE 6,000 tonnes of waste were collected with the help of almost 500,000 participants!

No waste is always the best waste!

Prevention Thematic Days 2016 - Packaging Waste Reduction: Use-less packaging!

The 8th edition of the EWWR will take place from 19 to 27 of November 2016. We are glad to announce the theme of this year’s PreventionThematic Days: Packaging waste reduction: Use-less packaging!

Packaging waste is a critical issue. Why? Because there is too much packaging! On one side it makes our life easier but on the other side it puts a lot of pressure on our environment as it increases our resource consumption and production of waste. To inspire and help EWWR Action Developers in implementing actions related to Packaging Waste, the EWWR Secretariat has developed a number of tools and factsheets.

Let’s all work together and Use less packaging!

Prevention Thematic Days. Packaging Waste Reduction: Use Less Packaging!
Prevention Thematic Days. Packaging Waste Reduction: Use Less Packaging!

Every year, the European Week for Waste Reduction selects a theme in relation to waste prevention, a priority in the waste hierarchy. These themes are the Prevention Thematic Days. This year all eyes are on packaging waste reduction because it is a critical issue for the environment. Although it does make our life easier, overconsumption of packaging can have a critical impact on our environment. Packaging that could be avoided, but is still used, leads to resource consumption and produces waste so let’s “Use Less Packaging!

Under this framework, the EWWR tries to gather attention on the best possible solution to reduce waste, because the best waste is that which is not produced! In previous years, we decided to focus on: Reuse, Food Waste and Dematerialisation.
