Plastics can be a hassle – they can be confusing to recycle – plus they contribute to litter, harm water and wildlife, and have largely unknown health impacts for us. Fortunately, there’s a lot we can do to help create a plastic-free world, from learning more about plastic waste and recycling, to making simple changes when shopping for food, personal care products, cleaning products, and more.
Be part of the solution to reduce waste, protect water and wildlife, and look after the health of ourselves and future generations by joining Maple Grove Citizens for Sustainability (mgc4s.club) and Hennepin County Plastic-Free Challenge this February.
The Plastic-Free Challenge is a month-long effort starting February 1 to reduce plastic consumption, especially single-use plastics, in ways that fit best in your lifestyle and have the most impact on reducing your footprint.
The online challenge has 70 actions you can choose from in seven categories. The MGC4S Team sign up is now open, and the challenge runs during the month of February 2024.
Once the challenge starts, you will report what actions you take and see the impact of your actions add up!
MGC4S is focused on reducing waste, encouraging more thoughtful consumption, increasing recycling, and sending less waste to landfills. Engaging YOU to take action is critical to our success.
The online Plastic-Free Challenge is powered by EcoChallenge.
