Can you dare to reduce your household waste production to zero? That’s the concept behind a new Austin, Texas based reality TV show called Dare to Go Zero, which follows the eco-friendly efforts of four families over five weeks.
Zero Waste Reality Show
The city of Austin has been working towards a zero waste goal, and the new TV show Dare to Go Zero is going to help get the word out. This is a great idea that will certainly get people talking about reducing the amount of waste they are producing, and hopefully mimicking their neighbours in their environmental efforts as well. The show will be airing on Austin’s Channel 6 starting this Friday, April 22 (Earth Day) at 7 pm.
Watch a preview of the show below:
How the Zero Waste Challenges work
Each of the four families will compete in weekly dares based around waste reduction, with the opportunity to win prizes for each challenge. Each week, the amount of waste produced by the families will be weighed, and the family that comes out with the least amount of waste at the end of the 5 weeks will win a $2,000 Sustainable Home Improvement Package.
Find out more about the Dare to Go Zero TV show at their Facebook page, and if you live in Austin make sure to tune in this Friday and see how you stack up against the families competing for the honour of zero waste.
