In the current climate, where the pandemic has led to a new peak in packaging use, it’s easy to forget about additional global-scale challenges. For this reason, outstanding organizations like Rezero monitor such problems and come up with solutions to combat any issue harming our planet.
Working closely with municipalities, regional and national governments, and at European level, Rezero promotes policies and good practices to reduce waste.
To get an overview of how they work and what type of projects they produce and implement, we interviewed Marta Beltrán, (Rezero’s International Projects Director), who kindly walked us through their most recent projects and objectives.
Good morning Marta, Could you please introduce yourself and tell us a little about what you do at Rezero?
Hello, glad to be here. I work in the division of European Projects. Rezero is an independent non-profit organisation formed 15 years ago. We want to shift the current mindset of production and consumption. We promote reusable solutions and aim to eliminate household waste. We work within the economic and social sectors of society, partnering with authorities and organisations to achieve our goals.
