Waste Reduction Week – Swap & Repair Sunday – October 24th
Waste Reduction Week – Swap & Repair Sunday
It’s Sunday – the last day of #WasteReductionWeek and we are talking Swap & Repair.
To wrap up the week, Canadians from coast to coast will engage with the theme swap and repair – two very simple yet important pillars to the circular economy. Many events planned during the weekend of Waste Reduction Week are swaps or repair cafés that are becoming increasingly popular. Swap & Repair Sunday shows Canadians 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.
