Is it just me or are you also full of energy as soon as it gets warmer and the days longer? I’m full of beans, so to speak, and thought a little zero waste challenge would be exactly the right thing for me.


1 month, 1 challenge

I did not want to come up with my own challenge immediately. Lucky me, I did not have to look far to find one. Last June, the awsome girls from Going Zero Waste and Be Zero had a 30 Day Zero Waste Challenge for us. But that’s not all! If you go to Zero Waste Nerd, you will find not one, but two challenges: 30 Days to Zero Waste and 30 More Days to Zero Waste. Finding a challenge can be so easy 😉

As I’m no complete zero waste newbie, I decided to combine the challenges a little bit to learn as much as possible. There is always something new to learn. Progress, not perfection 🙂


My plan for June looks like this (don’t be surprised if I mix up the days from time to time):
