Led by City of Denton Sustainability Education Coordinator Vanessa Ellison, event attendees will learn what they can and cannot recycle and take on the task of tracking their trash for a day or a week. Attendees will be given a repurposed, old jar to collect their trash and recycled waste to observe their personal discarded items and determine ways to limit their use of unrecyclable materials where possible. The challenge is meant to spur personal reflection and focuses on repurposing individual thinking to find accessible and meaningful ways for us to make changes in our waste-making habits. What will your “jar journey” look like? Can’t make the event? Join the social media challenge by tracking your trash in a jar and posting online with the tag #WasteJarUNT.
