Waste Less Live More Week is here!

Today sees the start of the first ever Waste less, Live more Week. The week brings together partners from across sectors to take part in events and activities and support the policy calls that work towards a future where people understand and actively care for one another and the environment.

It's not too late to get involved! There are lots of ways in which we can all waste less and live more at home, in school or at work. It's about doing things which are good for our health and wellbeing whilst not having a negative impact on the environment. From swapping the car for a bike, eating more fruit and vegetables, to getting to know our neighbours better through sharing and swapping belongings, the possibilities really are endless.

During the week you could attend a workshop to learn how to make a laptop case from upcycled fabric; attend a free screening of the award-winning documentary 'Happy'; give away unwanted items and find something in return for yourself at the Streetbank LIVE event; or attend a pop-up event on about how digital technology is changing the sharing economy. Check out the website for inspiration of what you can do or to find out what's going on near you.
