Here are the facts: one-third of the food we buy gets wasted. Imagine, 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 OK about… well, they’re mostly winding up in a landfill.
We can all do better and we’re here to show you how.
On June 21st, join us for the Green14 Challenge and learn how to easily reduce food and plastic waste and detoxify your home 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.
