Welcome to day two of MSA’s Green Week! Our challenge today, adapted from the No Impact Week guide by Green Muslims DC, is called “No Waste.” The plan is evident from the title: try generating zero waste today. Find ways to reuse or recycle anything that would otherwise go to waste, including items that normally go into trash cans. The idea is to get your creative juices flowing as you think of ways to keep items in use for as long as you can. No matter how much you can reduce your waste by, remember to collect your recyclables and bring them to 4448 East Hall this Thursday!
To help keep you motivated, here’s an Islamic inspiration. Later, we’ll post some facts we can all use to think about our consumption habits.
“But waste not in excess: for Allah loveth not the wasters” (6:141), (7:31).
