MORE COOKING FOR LESS TRASH

Let's put our rubbish bins on a diet!

According to the ADEME (the French Agency of the Environment and the Control of Energy), a French person produces around 580 kg of household waste each year. Today, more than 3/4 of the waste found in our household waste bins doesn’t need to be there: it could be reused by properly sorting or composting it. And better yet, it could not exist at all! As a little reminder, the best waste is the one that does not even exist!

WASTE REDUCTION: LESS WASTE, MORE HAPPINESS

"CONSUME BETTER TO REDUCE WASTE", LEITMOTIV OF THE EUROPEAN WEEK FOR WASTE REDUCTION 

Today, a French person produces an average of 590 kg of household waste (and other similar waste) per year. In the past 40 years, this amount has doubled as we now buy more (and more frequently) products with a short lifespan (Source: EWWR, 2020).  The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is held this year from the 20th to the 28th of November 2021. Organised alongside the ADEME (the French Agency for the Environment and Energy Management), this year’s programme focuses on raising awareness on how we sometimes (often!) consume unreasonably. This EWWR sends out a clear message: the best waste is the one we do not produce!
