WasteLESS Week 2018

WasteLESS Week is a five day campaign that Sodexo teams run during October at client sites around the world. In the UK and Ireland WasteLESS Week this year will be taking place between the 22 - 26 October 2018.

The 2018 WasteLESS Week focus is plastic reduction. Over 12 billion tonnes of plastic waste will be in landfills or the natural environment by 2050. This is just one of the reasons why tackling waste is so critical.

We believe that less waste means more quality of life and this is why reducing waste is one of our key Better Tomorrow 2025 commitments. What change will you make?

Speak to your line manager to start your WasteLESS Week journey and be in with a chance of winning the WasteLESS Week trophy and a prize for your team!
