Declutter My Home Without the Landfill

Each day, I will learn about responsible ways to dispose of items and de-clutter, clean, donate, repurpose or recycle unneeded items in my home to make sure that what I get rid of doesn't go into the landfill.

COMPLETED 30
DAILY ACTIONS

Climate + Air

Choose Renewable Energy

Renewable energy options are becoming more widespread and accessible. Not only are they good for the planet, they can help save money as well.

30 for 30 in Nature

Studies have shown that when we spend consistent time in nature, our health improves, our creativity increases, and our connection to the planet gets stronger. Each day of the Ecochallenge, I will spend 30 minutes outside (in a large or small patch of nature), then share my observations, reflections, and learnings on the feed.

Grass lawns are water-intensive and on average require about 30 percent of a household’s water consumption.

Millions of tons of plastic is produced each year worldwide.

    The following benefits that were identified during the EcoChallenge process.
    1. Reduction in Environmental Impact: By promoting sustainable practices, EcoChallenges can lead to a tangible reduction in waste, energy use, and other environmental impacts. This is particularly effective when many people participate and make small changes that collectively lead to significant environmental benefits.
    2. Education and Learning: EcoChallenges can be educational for participants of all ages, teaching them about topics such as recycling, the importance of biodiversity, and the impact of carbon footprints. This education can spur further interest in environmental subjects and lead to more sustainable lifestyles.
    3. Empowerment and Positive Engagement: Participating in an EcoChallenge can make individuals feel empowered to make a difference. It can shift the perspective from feeling overwhelmed by global environmental issues to taking positive, actionable steps at the local or individual level.
    4. Health Benefits: Many EcoChallenges encourage activities such as walking or biking instead of driving, or eating more plant-based meals, which can have health benefits as well as environmental ones.
    5. Innovation and Creativity: Trying to live more sustainably can inspire creativity, as participants think of new ways to reduce waste, conserve resources, or improve systems in their homes or workplaces.
    6. Economic Savings: Many sustainable practices promoted in EcoChallenges, like reducing energy use or minimizing food waste, can also lead to financial savings.

    EcoChallenge can bring a variety of benefits to individuals, communities, and the environment. The concept of an EcoChallenge generally involves taking part in activities that promote sustainability and environmental consciousness over a specific period. Here are some of the key benefits such events can offer:

    1. Increased Awareness: Participants often gain a deeper understanding of environmental issues and the impact of their daily choices. This increased awareness can lead to more informed decisions beyond the challenge itself.
    2. Behavioral Change: EcoChallenges encourage participants to adopt new, more sustainable habits that can lead to long-term behavioral changes. For example, by focusing on reducing plastic use or conserving water, participants can develop habits that they continue to follow after the challenge ends.
    3. Community Engagement: These challenges often bring people together, fostering a sense of community and shared purpose. This can be particularly powerful in creating group norms that favor sustainability, and it can encourage a culture of environmental stewardship within organizations, schools, or broader communities.
