 Waste Reduction Week in Canada
is intended to raise public consciousness
about waste and its environmental and social ramifications.
The WRW theme,
“Too Good To Waste”
is about conveying an appreciation
for the richness and beauty of our diverse world
and the importance of working toward ecological sustainability
by conserving resources and curbing wasteful practices.
The ultimate goal is to educate, engage and empower Canadians to reduce waste through provision of access to relevant information, opportunities and options. WRW in Canada is coordinated by a coalition of 13 recycling councils and sister organizations from across Canada. Collaborating on a national level, this partnership promotes waste reduction on provincial/territorial and local levels.
Get involved!

“We buy a wastebasket and take it home in a plastic bag. Then we take the wastebasket out of the bag, and put the bag in the wastebasket.” — Lily Tomlin, comedian
“A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it.” — George Carlin, comedian
Although comedians make fun of our wasteful consumption habits, it’s sad that it’s so true.  Waste Reduction Week in Canada provides the opportunity for Canadians to showcase their waste reduction activities in a number of ways.
