Circular Economy Monday

Monday’s programming showcases new and innovative circular economy stories and the organizations that are championing this new concept helping making linkages to how it advances resource efficiencies and waste reduction. 

Textiles Tuesday

Textiles Tuesday raises awareness on the environmental consequences of clothing and textiles consumption, and provides information on how you can extend the life of your clothing. 

E-Waste Wednesday

Did you know that globally last year, the total amount of electronic waste reached 53.6 million metric tonnes? With such rapid advances in technology and endless new innovative products released every year, electronic waste will quickly become one of the fastest-growing waste streams in the world. 

Plastics Thursday

Plastics Thursday highlights how the circular economy can reduce the use and waste of plastics; motivate improved recyclability of plastic goods; and increase the value of recycled plastic by improving product design, use, and end-of-life management.

Food Waste Friday

Take the pledge and commit to making choices that will keep your food from becoming waste. You can take the pledge as an individual, school, business/organization, household, or community.

Sharing Economy Saturday

Access over ownership and the sharing economy are important pillars that contribute to a circular economy. By shifting to access over ownership, the responsibility falls to manufacturers to make longer lasting and more efficient products that are designed with repair and reuse as primary considerations. 

Swap & Repair Sunday

Swap & Repair Sunday shows how simple it can be to extend the life of everyday products, and encourages them to take part in events in their community, school, or workplace to find new life for their unwanted or damaged products and textiles.
