Since landfills are hidden from view, it’s easy to overlook just how much waste we produce and how it negatively impacts our shared planet. Do you ever wonder how much waste you actually produce? Well, you’re about to find out!

For 24 hours, carry a bag everywhere you go and collect everything that you would otherwise throw away. Don’t hide it! Carry your bag of waste proudly and invite conversations with classmates and community members. At the end of 24 hours, take a photo of everything you collected separated into recyclables, non-recyclables, and food waste/compost.

We are counting all the steps taken to #MoveTheDate. More steps mean more impact.

Share a picture of your waste from one day on social media with the hashtag #MoveTheDate, and you will be entered to win a Footprint Chamption t-shirt (below).

This step is inspired by partner Turning Green’s Project Green Challenge.
