wastebusters

Each year, Green Neighbors hosts an annual WasteBusters Challenge to support the community in their efforts to curb unnecessary production of waste. We encourage you to join us! During registration, you will select one of three pledges to commit to over the three-week period of February 22 - March 15. Topic areas include reducing food waste, paper waste, and clothing waste. The challenge format is virtual, with participants setting up accounts to interact with others in the waste-busting community. Learn something new, adopt sustainable habits, and most of all, have fun! Register for the challenge here.

Points & Prizes

You can earn points throughout the competition by attending virtual events, completing weekly challenges and answering reflection questions. The individual and the group who earns the most points will each win a prize. Individuals who earn 500 points or more will also be entered into a raffle to win prizes. You will have the chance to win a refurbished iPad, an Instant Pot, reusable products and more!
