Got what it takes to reduce your waste?
Do you have what it takes to reduce your black bin waste by half?
Take our Bristol #WasteNothing Challenge and try and reduce the waste your household produces, save some money and help the planet!
The Bristol #WasteNothing Challenge is 365 days starting from 1st April 2019 where 50 households from across Bristol will challenge themselves to reduce the amount of waste they generate, working towards the ultimate goal of producing zero waste. We will support participants every step of the way with information, training and practical help.
What does the challenge entail?
All participants are encouraged to make changes, big and small, to their lifestyle to help reduce the amount of waste they produce
To keep a record of their progress, households must weigh the waste and recycling they produce and log the weights on an online form after every collection
Households will be encouraged to use a composter or wormery for the food waste they generate (don't worry, we’ll supply a wormery to all challenge households who need one), or if the household does not have room for either, they should weigh their food waste
What do households get from signing-up?
A #WasteNothing ‘starter-kit’ including a wormery and some basic tools to help them to start adopting zero-waste solutions as well as a scale and netted bag to weigh waste and recycling
Exclusive access to discounts and vouchers from our exciting group of Bristol-based partners to help reduce your waste when you shop, cook, study, work and play
12 months of workshops, tutorials, 1:1 support, talks and new sustainable experiences with inspiring zero-waste heroes
An online community forum for participants, partners and Bristol Waste where everyone can share experiences, advice, obstacles and encouragement
