    World Non-Waste Day: Uniting Youth for Environmental Consciousness

    Stemming from the minds of participants in the “European Youth Eco-Parliament,” World Non-Waste Day has emerged as a potent emblem of environmental consciousness.

    Since 2007, May 11th holds particular significance in Poland as the day marks the inception of the country’s packaging waste management system, in accordance with EU Directive 94/62.
