European Week for Waste Reduction - Campus Bourget

Eco-fashion show, clean walk, creative workshops to make Furoshikis/recycled sponges/ecologicalpurses/beeswax packaging, distribution of sustainable menstrual protection, donation, etc.his year again, the USMB's European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) offers you a rich and varied program on your 3 campuses !

Organized at the university from November 21 to 25 by the Student and Campus Life Service, UNITA, the Student Health Service, the Crous Grenoble Alpes and several student associations of the USMB, the EWWR informs you about good practices to consume better, produce better, extend the life of products and especially throw away less!


This week, among the many maker workshops and animations offered on your campus are:

The "Donnerie" space
monday, tuesday, wednesday and friday - 11h30-13h30 / Bât.6 EVE

Did you know that? The fashion industry is one of the most polluting in the world, emitting more greenhouse gases than international flights and maritime traffic combined. As clothes are sold at attractive prices, we tend to buy more of them than a few years ago and keep them for less time. Your look therefore has a direct impact on the environment! To refresh your wardrobe without heating up your credit card or your planet, take advantage of the free donation service. Clothes, hats, caps, scarves, bags: make your choice among the numerous items collected on campuses and in Crous residences these last weeks!

Want to give a second life to your clothes? You can also drop off your clothes and accessories and exchange them with other items that will be available during the donation.

Furoshiki workshop
Monday, November 21 - 12pm-1pm / Building 6 EVE

Put away your glue and tape, choose the fabric that inspires you and become a master of Furoshiki ! This folding technique, originating from a Japanese tradition that goes back more than 1200 years, is theideal alternative to gift wrapping paper. A rather stylish know-how that allows you to offer your gifts in an original and eco-responsible way. You can even make your furoshiki a gift in its own right by using a scarf for example. No need to come with your fabric, we provide you with everything you need during the workshop.

Recycled sponge workshop

Distribution of free durable menstrual protection
Wednesday, November 23 - 12:30-1:30 pm / SSE - Building 12A

Every year, more than 45 billion pads and tampons are thrown away worldwide. It takes about 500 years for these products to degrade, which is as long as a plastic bottle.

No need to register, just come and pick up your pack from the Student Health Relay during the office hours.

Coordinated in France by the ADEME (Agency for Ecological Transition), the European Week for Waste Reduction is a "high point" of mobilization during the year to highlight and spread good production and consumption practices that go towards waste prevention.

We talk a lot about the figures of food waste and yet, those of fashion and textile are just as alarming! This is why the European coordination of the EWWR has chosen to commit itself for its 2022 edition, in favor of a circular and responsible textile sector.
