As the West Valley continues to grow, there is a growing concern for environmental awareness. As a result, the City of Avondale has launched a “One-Less” Campaign to encourage people to make choices to reduce wasteful habits.
Starting on October 21st, each day will focus on a different aspect of waste with a challenge on how to reduce:
Day 1- Single Use Plastics
Avoid using items such as plastic straws and grocery bags
Only use reusable silverware (no plasticware)
Day 2- Recycling
Utilize proper recycling methods
Use our helpful High 5 Icon for recycling items
Show us your clean, recycled items by taking a pic and posting using the hashtag
Day 3- Keep It Real
Avoid take-out or bring your own to-go containers
Drink from reusable Water Bottles and Coffee Mugs
Day 4- Green Clean
Avoid using harsh chemicals
Use all- natural or homemade cleaners
Day 5- Zero Waste Day
Avoid wasteful habits
Can you go the entire day without creating waste?
Are you ready for the challenge? What habits will you continue to use after the campaign?
