Youth Educating about Waste (YEW) Project

Who are we? 

The Youth Educating about Waste (YEW) is a pilot peer-education project that aims to educate young people (aged 17 to 25) to make sustainable reductions in their waste, focusing on food, textiles and plastic materials.

For many young people, they are moving out of home for the first time or starting paid employment, which involves making decisions around how they spend and utilise what they have already. At this age, peers are a very strong influence and often, their primary source of information.
