Yesterday the European Week for waste reduction started and will continue until 27th November.
The idea is to increase awareness on how much waste we are producing and what can be done in this area. Like reusing, composting and recycling. Companies can also help by producing products that last longer or products that can be refilled or recycled at the end of its lifecycle.
Here is some common actions around Europe this week and here is some ideas for activities. On twitter the hashtag #EWWR is used on news and ideas. Swedish speaking can also go to @Minskaavfallet and www.minskaavfallet.se.
As for me and my boys we're gonna try to see if we can think of ways to reuse things this week that otherwise would have gone to waste.
