This Week is Waste Reduction Week in Ontario and across Canada.
Waste Reduction Week, run through the Recycling Council of Ontario, aims to inform and engage people about the environmental and social ramifications of wasteful practices. It strives to educate, engage and empower everyone, especially students to reduce, reuse and recycle waste.
Waste Reduction Week is about ideas to reduce waste in all facets of daily living, creating the solutions to the many environmental challenges we face including climate change, water pollution and preservation of natural resources.
Ontario has created an informational video regarding Waste Reduction Week which can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2gP7jWdrVY
