Travelling books, France (Pre-waste Factsheet 56)

"Travelling books" ("Passe-livres") is an annual campaign initiated and led by an local environmental association in Montreuil-sur-Mer, North of France. The main objective of this operation is to increase public awareness on waste generation by showing that cultural products can also generate waste. The idea of Travelling books is to give them a second life by exchanging them in several places in the city during the European week for waste reduction.

The first operation was held in 2008 and is expected to be renewed next year.
