Going waste free is challenging. It is even more challenging if you try to cut all waste from your life instantly. This is why we’ve created the Reusable Nation 8 Weeks to Waste Free Challenge.
Reducing your waste over eight weeks allows you to take the time to break old habits and form new ones and to slowly learn how to be waste free, so that you don’t become frustrated and discouraged. After these eight weeks, you’ll be able to reduce your waste and carry on living your best life waste free AND stress free.
