We know it can be hard to engage your residents with your recycling and that you struggle to create a buzz online. And while anecdotal evidence is important, you need tangible results.
With over a decade's experience of running the UK’s leading campaign on waste reduction, we know how to get results.
Zero Waste Week began with 100 participants in 2008 and reached over 56 million 10 years later. The award-winning campaign has been recognized by Prime Minister Theresa May and reaches participants in every county throughout the UK.
Here are some of the stats from the 2018 campaign:
- 58% reduced their landfill waste during Zero Waste Week
- 79% said they would recommend other people take part
- 61% have changed something about their lifestyle or shopping habits as a result of Zero Waste Week
- 72% say they trust the information shared throughout Zero Waste Week
We can provide social media images and written-for-you updates, training programmes for your staff or residents, online courses and consulting so you can get expert help on running a successful event or campaign of your own.
