Zero Waste Challenge

There is a lot of waste in our lives. The idea of this challenge is to try to reduce your waste as much as possible. Everything destined to be buried in the landfill gets put in a mason jar. Your goal is to fit it all into your jar. Strive to keep it as empty as possible.You are encouraged to embrace the 5 Rs of Zero Waste: Refuse / Reduce / Reuse / Recycle / Rot to reduce the waste you generate. <!--break--> What to do? Register as an individual, family or household at Get a 1 litre mason jar to track how you do. Personalize the challenge to help it be more achievable or to increase the challenge. Prepare. Learn how to think and act differently using resources such as our Zero Waste 101 page. Start figuring out what can help you meet the challenge such as how to shop. When your challenge starts, put all your waste destined for the landfill into your mason jar. Everything that can be composted or recycled should go in the green bin or blue box.
