Waste Week is an annual event held in schools across the UK to help raise awareness about what we're throwing away.
Waste Week runs from March 2nd to March 6th, so still plenty of time to plan some events and activities to get everyone involved. This years main focus is on food waste, including plastic bottles and packaging. A really important topic as food waste accounts for a third of all landfill waste.
Why not get involved in your school or office, you could hold an event to help educate everyone about reducing they're waste. Or have a competition to revamp your bin signage so it's new and fresh, even a small activity can help remind people to be more thoughtful about what they're throwing away.
