Zero Waste Challenge
Get personalized help to live a lower waste lifestyle
Many people are interested in taking steps to prevent waste, declutter, and recycle more, but aren’t sure where to start.
Hennepin County’s Zero Waste Challenge will help you learn more, connect you with resources to help you reach your goals, and provide support and motivation along the way.
The county offers a personalized, eight-month Zero Waste Challenge with limited participation once per year, and multiple rounds of the online Zero Waste Challenge with unlimited participation throughout the year.
Join the Stop Food Waste Challenge
We love food, which leaves us wondering: why do we let so much of it go to waste? About 40% of food is wasted somewhere along the supply chain, and you may be surprised to learn that much of that food waste happens at home.
Learning how to create a meal plan, buy just what you need at the grocery store, cook creatively, and properly store food can have a big impact on reducing the amount of food in your home that goes to waste. Join Hennepin County’s online Stop Food Waste Challenge to learn easy, practical skills that will help you stop wasting food, put more money in your pocket, and take action on climate change.
The challenge runs October 13 through November 10.
