Waste Reduction Week 2016
Welcome to Waste Reduction Week in Canada, held this year from October 17-23 2016. We want to challenge you to reduce your ecological footprint through the actions and activities located in this section. And we hope to inspire you to come up with your 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 RCBC, from each of the 13 participating provincial and territorial jurisdictions across Canada.
