On October 27, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) and its partners will celebrate Tennessee’s inaugural Zero Waste Day.
Challenge participation will open up on October 27. Participants will have the full day to complete challenges in support of Zero Waste Day. Tennesseans can submit examples of their participation in Zero Waste Day challenges below for the opportunity to earn waste reducing items such as re-usable straws, food preservation products, re-useable travel utensils, or a home composting kit. Individuals who take part in all five challenges will receive special recognition from TDEC for their exemplary participation in Zero Waste Day! Winners will be announced the week of November 2nd.
