In 2015, I participated in Plastic Free July and Zero Waste Week, both initiatives to challenge people to reduce their waste and monitor their progress.
Please also visit the website of Plastic Free July to read about other people’s experiences and the 2016 challenge.
Rachelle, the founder of Zero Waste Week, is also blogging on MyZeroWaste.com, be sure to give her blog a visit. But of course it also has a website of its own, which you can find here. You can also read about Zero Waste Week in many blogs from the Zero Waste Bloggers Network. You can find all members on their website.
