Zero Waste Europe was created to empower communities to rethink their relationship with resources.
In a growing number of regions, local groups of individuals, businesses and city officials are taking significant steps towards eliminating waste in our society. Zero Waste Europe engages these groups at two levels:
Supporting local groups with independent knowledge and streamlined tools to drive change more efficiently,
Structuring the movement internationally to better represent the interests of our communities at the EU level and engage policy makers with a unified voice.
We are both a knowledge network and an advocacy group, representing active communities in countries across the EU.
We want to re-design our society so that all superfluous waste is eliminated and everything that is produced can be re-used, repaired, composted or recycled back into the system. Anything that can't be repaired, composted or recycled should be re-designed and replaced or banned from entering the market.
