I have signed up for Zero Waste Week. I have been trying to live a zero waste life for a couple of months now – I am not completely zero waste yet, but I am pretty darn close!
Why don’t you sign up? Pledge to make a difference by reusing somehow. For one week, really take note of what you put in your bin to be sent to landfill. A few Pledge ideas from the Zero Waste Week website:
- Reuse shopping bags
- Reuse foil for zero waste lunches
- Reuse jars for storage
- Take clothes to a textile bank
- Reuse leftovers as ingredients
- Offer items on Freecycle
- Reuse blank paper for notes
- Use a refillable bottle
- Spread the word!
Well, for now, the date is in my diary, and I will think of something to do within their 2015 theme, REUSE. I am pretty much reusing everything in site, but I am sure I will discover something before the 7th September that I am not already doing.
If you aren’t already – get involved! It’s an awesome, refreshing lifestyle.
