City of Toronto proclaimed October 19 to 25 as Waste Reduction Week in Toronto. Waste Reduction Week in Canada is held every October as a reminder of the ways everyone can reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and to raise awareness about the importance of sustainable consumption.
This year, Waste Reduction Week focuses on reducing waste and maximizing resources by moving away from the take-make-and-dispose approach in favour of product longevity – known as a circular economy, renewability, reuse and repair. Each day will promote a different theme that will celebrate environmental efforts and achievements and innovative ideas and solutions to help reduce waste.
The City and its Community Reduce & Reuse Program partners will be hosting online workshops and events throughout the week on topics such as circular economy, bike repairs and swaps, sewing, community composting, food canning and recipes to reduce food waste.
