The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is an initiative promoting the implementation of awareness-raising actions about sustainable resource and waste management during a single week. It encourages a wide range of audiences (public authorities, private companies, civil society as well as citizens themselves) to get involved.

The 14th edition of the EWWR took place from 19 to 27 November 2022 and focused on Circular and Sustainable Textiles.The textile and clothing industry is one of the most polluting sectors, together with housing, transport, and food. This is caused by the strong impact it has on land use, water pollution and even greenhouse emissions. This sector has a high environmental and social impact in every phase: from production, to distribution, use, and after use (collection, sorting, recycling, and final waste management, which is most of the time related to incineration and landfills). With the slogan “Waste is out of fashion!” the EWWR wanted to challenge you to act together to reduce the waste produced by this sector. Please use #ewwr2022, #circulartextiles and #wasteisoutoffashion to spread the word on social media.

Learn more about 2022's theme and consult ideas for activities and thematic materials on the EWWR website.
