Take the Project Zero Waste Lunch Challenge

Project 0 Waste

Calling all students to take the Project Zero Waste Challenge. Whether you are back to school in-person, or attending class from home, you can challenge yourself to think about how a simple challenge can help make a big impact for the environment.

During the week of May 10-14, Orange County Department of Education’s Inside the Outdoors program and OC Waste and Recycling have teamed up together during the month of May to call on elementary, middle and high schoolers to showcase their skills when it comes to reducing lunchtime waste. Utilizing one or all of the 5 R’s-Refuse, Reuse, Rot, Repurpose, and Recycle, Inside the Outdoors will post short, educational videos with easy tips to reduce waste on The Inside the Outdoors Instagram page and YouTube Channel.

Not only can students view ITO’s videos for ideas and inspiration, but they can also submit their photos and videos to showcase how they are practicing #ProjectZeroWasteLunch Challenge. The challenge is open to all K-12 Orange County students and participation can take place in the home or at school. Five participants will be randomly selected on May 19 to receive a cool sustainable prize!
