Hillsborough County and its partners are seeking help in the 2022 Plastic Ecochallenge.
The county is asking you to help the county earn points by completing waste-reduction actions.
The Plastic Free Ecochallenge is an international monthlong event that ends July 31, according to a Hillsborough County news release
“The goal is to encourage a shift away from single-use plastic dependency and create a more sustainable society,” the release says.
You can get involved by visiting ReduceYourUseTampaBay.org.
After joining Reduce Your Use Tampa Bay, visit the Ecochallenge page to sign up for the challenge and start earning points for the team by completing waste-reduction actions.
The site suggests dozens of ways you can help reduce waste, or you can think up some actions of your own.
Some ways to help reduce waste include: being committed to skipping plastic bags, using a reusable water bottle, or preparing meals without using any items packaged in single-use plastic.
The Reduce Your Use Tampa Bay Ecochallenge team includes Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, City of Tampa, City of St. Petersburg, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, and Keep Pinellas Beautiful. These municipalities and nonprofits also are partners in the Reduce Your Use Tampa Bay campaign.
The three Reduce Your Use Tampa Bay team members from Hillsborough or Pinellas counties with the most points by July 31 will receive eco-friendly items provided by the campaign, according to the release.
