Zero Waste Week 2020: Home Edition
A message from the Sustainability Office.
Zero Waste Week is coming back from October 19 to 23. Join the Sustainability Office for some fun virtual activities and challenges to reflect and take action on reducing waste in our daily lives, including:
- Zero Waste Challenge (Monday, October 19 to Friday, October 23): Register for the challenge and collect your waste in a mason jar/container for one week to see how much you fill it up. Tell them how you did at the end of the week for a chance to win some awesome prizes.
- Tackling Food Waste Workshop (Wednesday, October 21, 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Online): Join the Sustainability Office, Food Services and Maison Verte for a workshop on simple steps to reduce food waste, including extending the life of produce, growing from scraps and more. All attendees will be entered to win a microgreen starter kit.
- Waste Warrior Quiz (Monday, October 19 to Friday, October 30): Are you a Waste Warrior or a Recycling Rookie? Test your knowledge about sorting waste on campus and access resources for sorting at home. All respondents will be entered to win prizes.
All of the above have prizes available for participating. For more information, visit the Zero Waste Week webpage and help us promote on social media using the hashtags #WasteWeekUW and #JoinTheShiftUW if you can.
