Challenges

Waste

Skip the Straw

Plastic bags and small plastic pieces like straws are most likely to get swept into our waterways. I will keep 3 plastic straw(s) out of the landfill and ocean each day by refusing straws or using my own glass/metal straw.

Waste

Recycle Everything I Can

Contamination prevents what is recyclable from being recycled. I will spend 20 minutes researching and recycling all materials that are accepted by local haulers or drop stations in my community.

    This is my third day of not using any straws. Although I have a few leftover plastic bottles from home, I am trying to eliminate all waste.

    I already use reusable cups, mugs, so some of these challenges are already completed.

    Today at school, I avoided using straws.
