Poster helps promote waste management in the Pacific
December 5, 2015 4:04 am
A colourful new poster launched yesterday by the Pacific Hazardous Waste Management Project or PacWaste – highlights the important role that we all play in protecting the future of our islands.
PacWaste is a €7.85 million, four year project funded by the European Union and implemented by the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) to improve regional hazardous waste management across the Pacific.
Called ‘Smart choices for a cleaner, safer Pacific’ the poster promotes a range of simple actions that contribute to reduced waste and increased resilience.
SPREP Deputy Director General Kosi Latu says while PacWaste’s main area of focus is on hazardous waste, a key aspect of sustainable waste management in general rests with behaviour change at an individual and community level.
