European Week for Waste Reduction Week

visitors to the Museum made their own contribution

the commitment of the Principality of Monaco

From 23 to 27 November 2020, the Oceanographic Museum will take part in the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR). The event aims to promote, during the same week, awareness-raising actions on sustainable resource management to move towards zero waste. The main axes of this event are: Reduce, Recycle and Reuse.

Given the current health context, it is impossible to propose, as last year, animations for the general public. On the other hand, it was important for the Museum to continue to be involved in this great waste reduction movement in other ways.

To this end, a programme of actions aimed at the staff of the Oceanographic Museum and our partners (CFM Indosuez Wealth Management) has been devised…

Waste sorting workshop

On Monday 23 November, a special break will be organised for the staff of the Oceanographic Museum in collaboration with the restaurant La Terrasse and in strict compliance with health regulations.
Objective: to raise awareness among the teams of eco-friendly gestures and “anti-waste” cooking.
Coffee, orange juice, French toast, apple and orange peel cakes. Edible cutlery and eco-designed containers. The cakes will be packed in a biodegradable and compostable lunch box with a lid; the coffee and drinks in eco-designed cups with a protective lid.
