Thank you to the residents and staff (pictured above) of the City of Avondale for participating in the 2019 week long One-Less campaign. We encourage residents and staff to continue these efforts all year and we look forward to an even more successful One-Less campaign in 2020. Every action makes a difference!
The City of Avondale is launching a five-day, social media “One-Less” Campaign to challenge all of us to do our part in reducing waste. Starting on October 21st, each day will focus on a different aspect of waste and will have an accompanying challenge. This is an effort to strike inspiration and encourage people to make a cognizant choice to shed wasteful habits.
The idea of going a full day without creating waste can be overwhelming, but the goal of one less wasted item is an ideal first step. And keeping in mind that all journeys need a place to begin, this could be your starting point to leading a greener, less wasteful, and more sustainable life.
Be sure to follow us on social media platforms for updates on the “One-Less” Campaign and share your own pictures using the #avondaleoneless.
