Re:waste – how Sweden is rethinking resources

Re:waste is a communications material about waste. In 2020, the world was estimated to generate 2.24 billion tonnes of solid waste, according to the World Bank. This figure is expected to increase by 73% from 2020 levels to 3.88 billion tonnes in 2050. Everyone is involved and all societies have challenges to solve.

While people living in high-income countries produce more waste compared to those in low-income nations, reducing waste is a global crisis that requires all of us to do our part. The exhibition and booklet included in the Re:waste communications toolkit outlines the underlying problems, the steps we all have to take to get out of the situation, and clever new innovations in development and on the market.

A successful approach to solve the crisis must be based on a properly managed waste hierarchy and a striving for a circular economy. The ultimate approach to waste management is to not create any in the first place.

Re:waste is produced to work digitally as well as physical, with an exhibition.
