Sign up to Notts Recycles Go Green for September 30 Day Challenge

Joining the fight against climate change has never been more important. Nottinghamshire declared a climate emergency earlier this year and we all need to do our bit in helping tackle the crisis and move towards carbon neutrality.

Nottinghamshire Recycles is on a mission to help us reduce the impact that we have on the environment, improve recycling habits across the county and ensure we’re all putting the right thing in the right bin, and that’s where the Notts Recycles Go Green for September challenge comes in.

Take part in a month-long campaign set to inspire you to reduce, reuse and recycle more.

The challenge kicks off today (1 September) and will coincide and celebrate Zero Waste Week (6-10 September) and National Recycle Week (20-26 September). So far over 1,400 challengers are signed up but it's not too late to get involved!

Anyone can get involved with the challenge; individuals, families, couples, friends, work colleagues and schools - the more the merrier,  everyone is welcome to take part.

When you sign up to the challenge you will receive a daily dose of green goodness straight to your inbox with tips and challenges to complete throughout September. Each challenge will show you how you can help make a difference at home in your everyday life, giving us all the chance to break old habits and form new, green ones.

We don't need to completely change our lifestyles to make an impact, small actions will make a BIG difference, which is why the Nottinghamshire Recycles Go Green 30-day challenge is a great way to get involved and help protect the environment for the future.  If we all try to adopt small everyday swaps it really adds up and will help, make a big difference not just in Nottinghamshire but across the country. 

There are lots of fantastic competitions with prizes to be won to keep you motivated throughout the challenge, what’s more there are extra prize draws if you get involved and share updates about the challenge on social media using #NottsRecycles.

What can you expect when you sign up to the challenge?

  • Daily tips and tasks straight to your inbox
  • A digital tracker to keep track of your progress
  • The chance to win one of hundreds of eco-friendly prizes
  • Learn how to make everyday swaps that will make a difference

So, get your friends, neighbours and colleagues to sign up too, support each other on the journey and let’s paint the county green this September Nottinghamshire.
