The Waste Reduction Week in Canada program is structured into seven themes. Our themes focus the discussion, promote achievements, and celebrate advancements in each area. Participants have the option to support areas that are most important to them or learn about a new issue.
New for 2020!
To further recognize important pillars of a circular economy, the daily themes have been slightly adjusted for 2020. The week will kick-off by introducing circular economy while celebrating broader circular economy initiatives and concepts. The weekdays will engage Canadians on key waste management issues and material streams: textiles, e-waste, plastics, and food waste. The weekend will encourage Canadians to extend the life of these products/materials through the sharing economy, swapping, and repairing. Champions and innovators of each theme will also be celebrated throughout the week and year.
