Here are the facts: one-third of the food we buy gets wasted. That’s like going to the grocery store and leaving one of three shopping bags behind in the parking lot – every single week. And only 7% of what we recycle actually gets recycled. Which means most of the recyclable items you sort of felt okay about… well, they’re mostly winding up in a landfill.
We can all do better, and we’re here to show you how.
On April 18, join us for the revamped Green14 Challenge and learn how to easily build a cleaner, greener lifestyle. If you joined us last year, you’ll learn even more in this brand-new spin on mastering sustainability! Featuring daily tips and insight for every area of your life, from the cooking in the kitchen to cleaning your home, we’ll walk you through key eco-minded changes, reducing waste, challenging your existing habits, detoxifying your home and choosing green products in just 14 days.
Don’t worry. This isn’t going to be a zero-waste challenge, because we all know that’s practically impossible. This challenge is about reducing food and packaging waste and reshaping your habits to consume a little less rather than just buying shiny new – and often disposable – things.
Sign up today and get ready to make your everyday life more eco-minded. Here’s what you’ll walk away with after 14 days:
- How to look at your food, cooking and shopping habits, your home and the waste your household produces and discover easy, doable ways to reduce your eco footprint
- We’ll cook together, stretch ingredients and meals, reduce food waste, find clever ways to use leftovers, and learn to cook root-to-stem
- Learn to upcycle household items, reduce packaging waste, buy less and repurpose more
- Save money while learning to love the planet better!
- Learn how to make nontoxic cleaning products and start composting and gardening
Every day, you’ll get a daily email with a new eco life tip you can put to use. Plus, we’ll share additional online content and videos to guide you along.
And Outside+ members will get even more exclusives. As a member, you’ll enjoy a brand-new meal plan, recipes, video content, and a wealth of online tips, tricks, and insight into creating sustainable habits. Become an Outside+ member today to enjoy every part of the Green14 challenge.
