Although registrations are closing on 13 November, it is still time to register an action for the EWWR 2020!

The 12th edition of the EWWR will take place from 21 to 29 November 2020 and will focus on invisible waste.

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?

“Invisible waste” refers to the large amount of waste generated during the manufacturing process of products.

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. It may not look obvious, but there are plenty of actions that we can all take to face this problem. Extending the life of products by reuse and repair, buying second-hand, renting and sharing products rather than owning them, obtaining an ecolabel and joining producer responsibility’s schemes… The list is long!

Find out more about invisible waste and check out the tools developed by the EWWR on the topic here.

And above all... do not forget to organise your own action!

You can follow the example of one of SMART WASTE partners, ACR+, which will organise a digital clean-up.
