Advanced Track – Reduce & Reuse
Choose one for your Advanced Challenge:

If you consistently minimize paper use, reuse shopping bags and never use aluminum cans, plastic bottles or plastic straws, you are ready for our Advanced Track. We have five options listed above for you to work on during this month.
Eco-Friendly Quiz – Our Eco-Friendly Quiz will show you your strengths and weaknesses. Chose a weakness and turn it into a goal for the week or the entire month. See Great Goals to remind you how to set great goals.
Encourage Others – Use your passion for protecting and preserving the environment to ignite change in your community. Organize a zero-waste event in your community or workplace. Step in and ask your tribe members what they think the most difficult challenge will be for them this month and how you can help.
Zero Waste Home – Glean ideas and inspiration from the Zero Waste Home, then put it into action and pass it along to others.
Compost – Composting can be a great way to sustainably dispose of some food scraps and some garbage (for example, hair, lint, coffee grounds, cotton swabs, old cotton towels and clothing and sticky notes). Plus, if done correctly, it can create luscious, rich soil for your garden, or can be turned into a side hustle for extra income. Information and videos for composting are abundant online.
5 R’s Journal – Use the 5 R’s Journal to identify the contents of the garbage can and recycle bin, and analyze how you can eliminate each piece of waste without sending it to the landfill and minimize the recycle bin.
