What are we talking about?
For the past 6 months we have been working together on a toolbox to reduce waste in the tourism and events industry. We are pleased to announce that the fruit of this work has reached maturity! 100% free and openly accessible to everyone, the toolbox aims to share concrete tips and examples to guide tourism companies (hotels, hostels, campsites, restaurants…) and events organizers (festivals, conferences, congresses, sport, cultural and artistic events…) to work at reducing and improving waste management. It is divided into four sections:
- Methodology: 10 steps to implement change.
- Solutions: for each of 12 short-listed waste streams.
- Examples: testimonials of tourism and events organizations.
- Useful resources: suppliers database, videos, visuals, template documents…
Anyone can also register for a free 3-month-online course.
Who is behind it?
The contents presented here have been instigated by makesense and SUEZ as part of the Future of waste program and its 2018 Wasteless Journeys campaign focusing on waste management in the tourism and event industries. The contents here presented have been written and collected by our community and partners in a collective effort to ease the circular transition in those sectors.
How can people contribute?
This toolbox is the fruit of a collective work. We’ll collect user feedback until 31th of March. It will then be translated into French in September 2019.
