Wrap to refocus on resources
Waste advisor Wrap is to refocus its efforts in an attempt to bring about a revolution in resource use, according to a new strategy launched today.
The charity said its work for the next five years will encourage businesses, consumers and governments to challenge the usual approach to consumption, in particular on food and drink, clothing and textiles, and electricals and electronics.
Wrap has selected these areas, as it believes this is where it can have the greatest impact. Together, they account for 25% of the UK’s carbon footprint, 80% of its water footprint and 40% of household waste, it said.
