I have been hard at work on this 31-day challenge, and I am so excited to share it with you! Rebecca, a middle school math and science teacher in the bay area, had a fabulous idea for Zero Waste October.
She asked me if I’d be willing to craft a challenge with an accompanying workbook inspired by my 31 Day Zero Waste Challenge which is geared more towards adults.
I lept at the chance to create something in conjunction with a teacher, and several schools participated in Zero Waste October the first year we rolled it out.The challenge can be done by individual families or with teachers in a classroom setting. Of course, you don’t have to do the challenge in October, you can do it anytime of the year.But, Rebecca specifically chose October because it’s the perfect time for her classroom because the kids are settled into their school routines and there are no major holiday breaks happening.
With this challenge you’ll find a few things you’ll need. The handy PDF booklet which is free to print or you can keep it as a digital copy, the calendar below which you can print or make the background of your phone and tablet.And, if you’re a teacher be sure to check out this google doc for morning announcements and daily bulletin blurbs.
