Evidence, collaboration and policy

We collaborate with others to campaign for social and environmental change around the sustainable use of resources.

LoudhailerWe 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.

For example we recently alongside our parent charity, Keep Britain Tidy, and SEEd (Sustainability and Environmental Education) bought together over 30 high-profile charities and organisations to urge the Government to keep sustainability in the National Curriculum.

At a policy level, we respond to government consultations on issues from landfill bans to education for sustainable development to waste prevention.

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.
