Reuse More Throw Less 2017 Campaign
RREUSE took part in the European Week for Waste Reduction. Our annual campaign Reuse More Throw Less was carried out by 170 re-use centres from our network during the week of 18 – 26 November 2017.
Over six days, participating re-use centres in five European countries weighed all donated goods collected and sold in their shops. At the end of each day, we added these numbers together to show the impact the participating re-use centres have on waste reduction.
By communicating how much we have saved from ending up as waste, we wanted to show that we can not only save resources but also help to create local employment by donating used goods and buying secondhand. We achieved this by involving the second-hand shop customers, employees and the wider public.
