@jo perhaps you could make it more fun, give them a reason to want to participate. Buy something that sparks everyone’s attention, anything small like a gift card, video game, something of their interest than make it a game between everyone, who ever excels the best gets rewarded with the prize or make it a group reward, if everyone does their part you go to a movie, on a trip, some type of fun park! Hope this helps or inspires to spark another idea! 😊

I was hoping for more on how/where to buy things that are not packaged in plastic. I recycle and compost already, and I bring cloth bags to the store. My husband insists on having paper towels in the kitchen but they are compostable. So 90% of my household waste is plastic wrapping. Ugh!

hi,
I am very happy to learn that there are others out there, too, who are thinking of Reducing, ReUsing and ReCycling, which has always been my mantra and my way of life. I have been laughed at for carrying my own shopping bags to the Supermarket, even before Recycling was in fashion and the Ex looked down on me for not being “Cool” enough to use Plastic bags!
So proud to have stuck to my guns!

I would love some support on locating waste free products such as toilet paper and pet foods.

Hello,
Just to answer jo’s cry for help. I have found that the best way to change people’s way of life is to lead by example instead of telling them what to do all the time and criticising. Implement the steps yourself and brag about how you are saving money by reusing and being careful how you buy things and how proud you are that you’re helping the environment. When they see all the benefits, they will change their ways.

How can I do this challenge with 5 people living in the same household? They do not want to participate in this challenge with me, but I do not know how I can reduce waste of everyone. Help?
