Cleaning and Washing are part of the everyday life of consumers. The kind of cleaning products, their ingredients and consumption habits have a great impact on how sustainable these everyday routines are. This and next year ConPolicy supports the Forum Waschen in the organization of the 12th Stakeholder Workshop in March 2013. The Forum is a sustainability initiative in the areas of cleaning and washing, that was awarded as a Werkstatt-N-Project by the German Council for Sustainable Development (RNE) in the years 2011 and 2012. It took also part in the week of the environment 2012 which was hosted by the German President and the German Bundesstiftung Umwelt. Since 2002 experts from politics, academia, unions, producers of cleaning products and cleaning equipment, churches and NGOs cooperate in this forum.
