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 took place between the 22 - 26 October 2018.

The 2018 WasteLESS Week focus was plastic reduction. Over 12 billion tonnes of plastic waste will be in landfills or the natural environment by 2050. This is one of the reasons why Sodexo believe that less waste means more quality of life and this is why reducing waste is one of our key Better Tomorrow 2025 commitments.

Keep your eyes peeled to see which particpating teams have won the WasteLESS Week trophy and a prize!
