The 'Waste Free' Challenge

What does waste free living actually mean? It literally means reducing the amount of waste you put into your rubbish bin. Reducing the amount of waste being put into your rubbish bin has huge positive environmental impacts by reducing the amount of rubbish that ends up in landfill

So what is the challenge? 

We are challenging you to reduce your waste to a Jam Jar. We are classing waste as anything that cannot be reused, recycled or composted. Obviously, reducing your waste to zero would be amazing but also extremely difficult to do. 

The challenge isn't restricted to a jam jar for a month.You can amend the challenge and set your own realistic goals to reduce your waste over whatever time period; however, the ultimate challenge is 1 jam jar's worth of waste for the month of Feb. 

Need help?

We have created a fantastic Waste Free guide to give you guidance and tips. 



We have also set up a Facebook Group to support everyone taking part in Waste-Free Feb. This is a place where you can share any tips or things that you have found useful to know but it's also a place to ask for help.
