No Waste Challenge Board

How long can you go without adding to our land-fills? This bulletin board will help you create a No Waste Challenge for your students.


  • Old newspapers
  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Scrap paper cut into squares
  • Marker


  • Begin by covering the bulletin board in the old newspaper.
  • Now use the toilet paper rolls to create a border for the bulletin board.
  • Use the marker to write: Who Will Win the No Waste Challenge?
  • Students should use the scrap paper cut in squares to note their name along with how many hours/days they were able to go without creating waste.
  • Make a crown for the winner out of the toilet paper rolls and newspaper as recognition for a job well done.
