Ecocities need ecocitizens. It’s not enough to have green buildings and renewable energy if we are living throwaway lifestyles!
From July 1-30, 2018, Ecocity Builders organized the Ecocity 30-Day Zero Waste Challenge campaign to connect the threads of personal actions to broader ecocity ideals to transform our everyday choices to deeper shades of green.
In partnership with Liberated Spaces, Goingzerowaste.com, bezero.org and Stop Waste, the challenge included topics like zero waste grocery shopping, recycling, walking and biking, saving water, composting and decluttering your life.
Documenting their journey through #EcocityGoingZero on Instagram, ecocitizens everywhere tackled some of the most pressing zero waste challenges of our time as well as delved into deeper arenas of personal habit and behavior change, while following along with fellow participants around the world to share/compare what ecocitizenship looks like in different cities and cultures.
