Waste Reduction Week 2011 is October 17-23, 2011Posted: September 12th, 2011
Waste Reduction Week is almost here!
At Urban Impact, we are looking for creative ways to reduce our ecological footprint through the actions and activities located in this section. We hope everyone is inspired to come up with their own, unique, creative ways to reduce waste.
Since 2001, National Waste Reduction Week in Canada (WRW) has been organized by a coalition of non-government, not-for-profit environment groups, including Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC), from each of the 13 participating provincial and territorial jurisdictions across Canada.
Waste Reduction Week (WRW) in Canada is intended to raise public consciousness about waste and its environmental and social ramifications.
The WRW theme, “Too Good To Waste” is about conveying an appreciation for the richness and beauty of our diverse world and the importance of working toward ecological sustainability by conserving resources and curbing wasteful practices.
