The Community Office for Resource Efficiency (CORE) is partnering with the City of Aspen Environmental Health Department and Aspen T.R.E.E. for the final segment of the 2012 Waste Free Challenge series, “Waste Not, Want Not.” Beginning Sunday, Nov.11, participants will measure their plastic waste for five days without actively trying to change their behaviors.

Starting Friday, Nov. 16, individuals will set a goal for reducing plastic consumption for the last five days. Photos of plastic waste will document the changes between the first five days and the last five. At 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, all are welcome to join a celebration of successes at Aspen T.R.E.E.’s free Early Bird Thanksgiving Community Meal at Aspen High School Commons. The Environmental Health Department will award prizes for challenge participants including water bottles, composting supplies and more to those who have reduced plastic waste. CORE encourages downvalley participants to ride the bus, bike the Rio Grande trail or rideshare to the community meal.

Staff will organize a carpool for those interested: 963-1090.
