Zero Waste is for life, not just for EWWR!

The last week of November 2020 is European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) which is organised by our Circular Economy for Youth project partners ACR+

Working with some local community partners in Rhondda Cynon Taf, Pontydysgu’s CEYOU project has supported the setting up of a brand new circular economy initiative Zero Waste Cynon. Their website and social media presence launched at the start of November and they have organised a number of activities to coincide with EWWR. Their ethos is that zero waste and reusable alternatives should be accessible to everyone.

We believe in a world where zero waste is not only for those who can afford it, where environmentally friendly options are not prohibited by cost, where everyone can make a difference.

As part of EWWR they are asking local residents to contribute to a crowd sourced food waste reducing recipe book and to share their top tips on waste reduction. There are also competitions for 0-6 and 7-11 year olds to share their zero-waste lunch ideas and design a zero waste poster.

Beyond EWWR the initiative hopes to continue into the future by providing an online environment to both collect ideas and showcase local opportunities for reuse and recycling.
