The GOOD 30-Day Challenge: Waste Less

Posted by Trish Riley, July 5, 2011

We at GoGreenNation have been challenged by Good magazine to participate in their 30-Day Waste Less Challenge! Let’s Go! –TR

The average American produces about 4.4 pounds of garbage per day, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, and in Mexico, households create 30 percent more trash than Americans. It all seems insignificant at first—a Starbucks cup here, a sandwich box there—but pretty soon you’re sweating while hauling giant Hefty bags to the curb yet another week in a row. Let’s stop being so trashy, and let’s start this month.Our GOOD Challenge for July is to waste less. How you go about that is up to you.

Consider this post an open invitation to join in the challenge. On Twitter and Facebook, we’ll be using the hashtag #30DaysofGOOD to keep you abreast of our progress, and we hope you’ll use it to let us know how you’re faring as well.

Good luck cleaning up your act.
