Project Description

Share the results of your trash audit!

Download the worksheet to complete your audit, and then share your next steps in the project space. Whether you’re trying a simple swap or instituting a thirty-day buy ban, sharing your experience is another way to make an impact!

As you learn, consider the following:

  • Were you surprised by the results of your trash audit? Which item will you tackle first? 
  • For new habits to stick, they must be sustainable for you. Which habit shifts fit your life right now, and why?
  • Small changes add up over time, so celebrate your progress! What’s a creative solution you’ve come up with? 

Remember, the goal isn’t perfection, its simply making better choices. We can’t wait to hear about the path you choose!
