Evidence, collaboration and policy
We collaborate with others to campaign for social and environmental change around the sustainable use of resources.
We ran the first ever national recycling campaign – Rethink Rubbish – back in 2001, as well as award-winning campaigns at a local level.
And we continue to campaign for change in the way we design, produce, buy, use and dispose of things.
You can find out more about our new Pack It In campaign highlighting the problem of excessive packaging or download campaign materials to help you run campaigns in your own area.
At a policy level, we respond to government consultations on issues from landfill bans to energy efficient product design.
Waste Watch is also a member of the European Environmental Bureau – an umbrella organisation for environmental organisations, which allows us to engage in the formulation of EU legislation.
