Zero waste challenge
Slash your trash
Ever wonder how you create so much trash at home?
Reducing waste is a great way to lower your impact on the environment and reduce the amount of stuff you have to deal with, but it can be hard to figure out what actions to take and how to fit them into your life.
If you’ve ever wanted to reduce the amount of waste you create, Hennepin County’s new Zero Waste Challenge is a great opportunity to learn more and get hands-on help. Households participating in the challenge commit to taking a year-long look at the goods we buy and waste we create to uncover the opportunities and challenges to increasing recycling and reducing waste.
The first pilot group of families are in the middle of their year-long challenge. The county will likely be accepting applications for the challenge again in late summer or fall 2017.
