“Mind Your Waste Foundation was at the Monaco Oceanography Museum to talk about "How to reduce single use plastics".
Mind Your Waste Foundation was founded in 2015 to create a cleaner environment by promoting a behavioral change to eliminate littering, minimize waste production and to ensure proper disposal of waste.
Our vision is to create a clean and sustainable world where society behaves responsibly to minimize waste production and ensure proper disposal of waste.
Our mission is to create behavioral change by executing environmental consciousness campaigns, developing educational programs and incentives, improving environmental policies and sharing inspiring best practices for a litter free environment.
In order to achieve our mission, we collaborate with all public and civil organizations including municipalities, education and media institutions and non-governmental organizations.
Waste prevention means consuming thus discarding less. Reducing is the most preferred method of waste management and goes a long way toward protecting the environment.
We throw away 90% of our belongings after 6 months of usage. Reuse items by repairing, donating or selling.
We can always say no to single use plastics like plastic bags, straws, packaged goods, baloons, disposable cups. Carry yout own shopping bag and water bottle. Say no to single use plastics.
Recycling turns materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources. It is necessary for environmentalal sustainability.
Waste is a material, substance or byproduct eliminated or discarded as no longer useful or required after the comletion of a process.
Waste is one of the most challenging problems that humanity is currently facing.
Along with the industrial revolution, technology has developed gradually and in the meantime, waste production has increased rigorously. Technology, heavy industry and production got ahead, so as the waste production. Due to these developments in the industry, waste disposal became the common problem of humanity.
World population is expected to reach 7.7 billion by the end of 2020. Arbitrary and unplanned urbanisation can cause public spaces’ and natural resources’ impairment, air and water pollution and excessive waste production.
Rapid population growth, industrial developments and urbanisation brought the “waste” problem within themselves. Due to this problem, waste management system (collection, transportation and disposal of waste) in big cities cannot process seamlessly, it needs extra effort to keep our environment clean.
There are mainly 3 types of waste;
Household waste ( domestic waste / municipal solid waste)
Commercial Solid Waste
Industrail solid waste
How much waste do we produce?
What is the most littered item in the world?
Does pollution has an effect on water resources?
