Week 3: Let's Talk Trash

Trash is a dirty subject, but one that is very important! Every civilization has had waste problems, especially ours. This challenge is going to ask you to look at the trash you create and try to find ways to lower the amount you are throwing away. Generally, when it comes to waste, we like to follow the 3 R’s. REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE. The most important R is the first R, REDUCE. REUSE is the 2nd most important R and RECYCLE should be what do with a waste that cannot be reused. Your challenge today is going to follow the three R’s so be prepared to talk about trash! Once you are finished with the challenge, fill out the short questionnaire at the bottom and send it to bw@cityofboise.org along with the names and addresses of the participants. Include any pictures or videos that you would like to share!
