We know that recycling alone will not be enough to solve the waste crisis we face today. Urgent action is needed to tackle the problem systematically and holistically. An important component of this is the need for citizens to rethink their consumption patterns and methods to generate less waste. In recent years we have seen a huge rise in the growth and popularity of packaging-free shops across Europe, aimed at reducing waste and connecting consumers with the food & products they purchase.
Zero Waste Europe recently conducted a pioneering survey on the rise of packaging-free shops in Europe and what this means for waste prevention levels. The findings of this survey will be presented at the start of the webinar and will form the basis of the discussion throughout, with leading experts from industry and business sharing their insights into what role packaging-free shops can play in societies transitioning towards zero waste.
This webinar will take a closer look and examine some key questions:
- What impact are packaging-free shops currently having on waste generation levels in Europe?
- What roles do packaging-free shops have to play within a zero waste plan?
- What action can cities & municipalities take to facilitate the growth of further packaging-free and zero waste shops within their local area?
Unfortunately, the webinar platform we use has a maximum capacity of 100 virtual seats. Therefore, to watch the webinar for free, attendance on Zoom will be done a first-come, first-served basis, meaning that only the first 100 people will be able to join on Zoom. However, if you are not part of the first 100 who join at the start of the webinar, then you can still follow the webinar live on our YouTube channel.
We will ensure questions posed on our Youtube channel are still relayed to the speakers. The speakers presentations will be available for free in the following days. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
