    It’s that time of year again, and my 11th time participating in VIDEA’s Global Solidarity Challenge!

    I’m super excited for this year’s GSC theme of forager’s and scavengers, and I’m a proud member of Team Raccoon.

    Since raccoons are the trash panda’s of the world – my challenges of the week will be garbage related.

    I will be challenging myself and my family and friends to do a week of zero waste!

    This will be tough for my family of 6, with a toddler in diapers and a reliance on Costco groceries to feed everyone, despite their heavy use of unnecessary packaging. Follow along as I document our struggles and successes to shift to a zero waste life style.

    With the help of my kids, I will also be committing to “scavenge” for other people’s garbage in true raccoon style in order to recycle, reuse and dispose of it in more environmentally friendly ways. This may include reselling of items to help support my challenge – one person’s trash is another’s treasure! Stay tuned!

    Thanks in advance for your support of me and of VIDEA, it is so appreciated!
