Waste•smART – creative competition
Imagine all the resources, energy and labour that are used to produce food, cars, clothes, mobile phones and everything we consume. If we do not re-use and recycle them, they could be ending up in landfills or incineration plants. Each year, EU citizens generate an average of half a tonne of household waste per person. Waste can be an economic loss and it can also negatively impact the environment as well as human health.
