Waste Challenge

Jen, a SEE-Change Inner North member, did a waste challenge with her neighbours to see who could produce the least waste for 2 weeks.

The challenge was to see which household produced the least waste going to landfill after composting and recycling had been undertaken.

They found the process very enlightening, especially discovering that there are some products that produce packaging waste that have no where to go but landfill.

The results of this challenge – a 50g waste Hedgehog!
