European Week for Waste Reduction

Let's put a stop to waste!

We've partnered with an initiative which aims to raise awareness on sustainable resources and sustainable waste management: European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR).

During this week, the whole of Europe aims to give a special dimension to the event through a large number of initiatives, strengthening each action and raising citizen awareness.

This initiative is for everyone! Entities; Public Administration; Companies/Industries; Non-Governmental Organizations; Educational Establishments (Schools and Universities) and Citizens, groups or individuals, are all invited to take part in the European Week for Waste Reduction.

What are the main goals of the EWWR?

  • to increase awareness about reducing waste, reusing products, and recycling strategies for materials in the European Union and in Member States;
  • to highlight the work carried out by those who participate in the EWWR;
  • to mobilize and encourage European citizens to develop initiatives around the key themes of the Week;
  • to enhance the training of the EWWR stakeholders, providing specific communication and training tools.

European Week for Waste Reduction 2023: Registration open!

In 2023, the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) will take place between the 18th and the 26th of November. This year, the central theme of the Week is Packaging.

The European Week of Waste Reduction will focus 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.

The campaign will raise awareness of the strong environmental impact of packaging, always providing inputs, ideas, and support to promote a more sustainable consumption behavior. The EWWR community will also be guided through the different kinds of packaging and the alternatives that exist to reduce packaging waste.

Registration for EWWR 2023 is open between September 4th through November 5th, 2023.
