Waste Reduction Week in Canada is a national campaign aimed at building awareness around the issue of sustainable and responsible consumption. WRW takes place during week 3 of Circular Economy Month, a public awareness campaign that takes place annually throughout the month of October to raise awareness of the benefits of a circular economy. Focusing on the core principles of a circular economy, Waste Reduction Week will highlight seven different but related themes. Participants may choose to explore one or several of these themes during the week-long celebration
Waste Reduction Week provides students and teachers from across Canada with an excellent opportunity to explore the social, economic and environmental impacts of waste and to take action to reduce, reuse,and recycle waste within their own communities.
