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 12th edition of the EWWR will take place from 21 to 29 November 2020 and will focus on invisible waste.“Invisible waste” refers to the large amount of waste generated during the manufacturing process of products. Did you know that to manufacture a smartphone weighing less than 200 grams and coming in a small package, an unbelievable 86 kilograms of waste are produced? With the slogan “What’s your real weight?” the EWWR challenges you to get informed about the extra kilos we all carry on our shoulders due to unsustainable production and consumption patterns. Please use #EWWR2020 and #invisiblewaste to spread the word on social media.

Learn more about this year’s theme and consult ideas for activities and thematic materials on the EWWR website.

Don’t forget to follow the EWWR on Facebook @ewwr.eu, Instagram @2ewwr & Twitter @2EWWR to get the latest updates about the initiative!
