packaging waste


WHAT will be done


Description of the EWWR action IN ENGLISH

Under Together for a Better Society initiative organized by the Chamber of Public Utilities in Slovenia, our company will participate in the European Week of Waste Reduction with a demonstration of how much packaging waste each of us produces per year. Packaging waste will be displayed in waste bins that will be displayed in city centres, markets and on other popular locations where people are frequently passing by.

The aim of the demonstration is:
– to raise awareness of our high usage of packaging with a very straightforward illustration of the amount of packaging waste we produce each year;
– promote reduction of packaging use and promote responsible, sustainable consumption.

The demonstration will take place in various cities across Slovenia. Besides the demonstration we will also distribute citizens waste diaries so they will be able to monitor how much packaging they are producing and how can they avoid it as well as give them advice on how to reduce their packaging use in their everyday life.
A set of materials (press releases, infographics) will be shared also on our website, social media and with media.
