Humusz Waste Prevention Alliance

The objective of Humusz is to make sustainable production and consumption an everyday practice in Hungary. We work in order to create the will, to disseminate the knowledge required and to develop the societal, economic and environmental framework of conditions needed. In this regard we consider civil communities, teachers and students, municipalities attending higher education to be our outstanding allies.


Our tools on the way to zero waste include the provision of information, education and consulting, the research for good practices, developing and establishing waste prevention examples and good practices, and the stimulation of community co-operations.
