Taking action

The way we live today is damaging our planet

We want to help you tackle the causes of the climate crisis.

We must stop wasting our natural resources. Everything we use should be re-used and recycled. WRAP can help you to protect the planet by changing the way things are produced, consumed and disposed of.

Our vision is a thriving world in which climate change is no longer a problem.

WRAP Cymru is supporting Wales’ shift towards a truly circular economy, where waste is eliminated and resources are kept in use for as long as possible. As well as being good for the environment, a fully circular economy could create up to 30,000 new jobs and deliver annual savings of up to £1.9billion in materials costs alone.

By developing a circular economy for Wales, we can help reduce the demand for natural resources to a level that could sustainably be met by the planet. Crucially, it also has the potential to satisfy the needs of the growing world population without compromising future generations to meet their needs.
