My Year of Eco Challenges no. 12 – Zero Waste Week!

Click here for National Zero Waste week 2014

Having not blogged for four weeks, I am now blogging twice in one day!  There is a lot to say though as on my first day back I am straight into my next and final challenge on My Year of Eco Challenges, which will be to throw nothing away for the first week of September! In case you missed it, here is a reminder of My Zero Waste Week selfie.

I am going to take the pressure off myself though – I gave up towards the end of Plastic Free July because it was too hard and I haven’t been plastic free or zero waste over the holidays. I don’t want to give up because it is too hard during Zero Waste Week, so although I am going to throw nothing away, I will recycle and compost things and I will keep anything that I would have thrown away during the week. At the end of the week I will try to work out if I can recycle or upcycle any of the things that would have gone in the bin.

If you fancy joining in, the challenge is ‘one more thing’ – can you do one more thing to reduce your waste? Go on – you know you want to 😉

I am currently undertaking a Year of Eco Challenges . If you have a moment I would really appreciate it if you would consider sponsoring me with an action (no money involved) on my DoNation page. Also if you liked this post please click like on Facebook and follow on Twitter – thanks so much!


  1. Good luck Zoe with your final challenge! We've been clearing out and packing for a house move and the amount of junk we have that we can't even recycle or give away is quite frankly sickening. Definitely a punch in the face to remember not to acquire so much stuff when we move to the next place! Wondered where you'd gone, hope you had a nice holidays!
