Packaging & EWWR

The theme of this year’s European Week for Waste Reduction is ‘Use-less Packaging’. 

Some packaging has its uses like keeping food fresher for longer but packaging waste in Scotland is an unavoidable issue.

We throw away 208 million disposable coffee cups every year. If we stacked them end to end that would be the equivalent length of Loch Ness – 674 times over! What other packaging can you think of that is useless or wasteful?

What actions could you take to reduce the packaging you waste at home, work or school? Take a look at our toolkit, resources and action plan for ideas and support.
