Trash Hack Campaign

Learn about the trash hack campaign!

The global campaign “Trash Hack” encourages young people to take action to promote sustainable development, reflect on their actions, and share their learnings. While the campaign officially ran from January to March 2021 (you can watch the launch webinar here) it’s not too late to participate! You can still share your trash hacks on social media by using the hashtag #TrashHack.

For this educational campaign, FEE has partnered with the UNESCO Associated Schools Network (ASPnet) to make a global call for action and encourage schools to engage in action learning on trash, waste management and, more widely, sustainable development! Many students participating in Eco-Schools, Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE), Learning about Forests (LEAF), and especially the Litter Less Campaign, have already made important actions to reduce their waste. Now it’s time to inspire millions of others to do the same!

During this pandemic, disposable protective materials like masks and gloves have created a new stream of hazardous waste. When it comes to tackling the world’s trash, it can be hard to know where to start. But by making “hacks” or changes in our homes, schools and communities, we can reduce our negative impact, increase our understanding and start to be part of transforming the world. The global is connected to the local!
