Will.i.am Screams + Shouts For A Day Without Waste

"The Voice UK" - Red Carpet Launch
Here’s something to make you gulp: Each day Americans create about 370,000 TONS of trash. That’s why will.i.am’s Ekocycle and Global Citizen have teamed up for A Day Without Waste.

We want every day to be a day without waste, but today, specifically, is the Day Without Waste campaign event. You can check out the website for ways to take action — and by getting involved, you can even get the opportunity to win concert tix through the Global Citizen Tickets Initiative and the Global Citizen Nights concert series.

But beyond that, today can be a day to learn more about ways you can lessen your waste all year long. For instance, instead of using a different disposable straw each time you buy a drink, you could just drink straight out of the glass or cup. Or instead of using plastic bags each time you got to the store, you could buy a reusable bag and take it to the store with you each time.

If you keep doing stuff like this — and encourage friends and fam to do the same — it can and will make a diff.

“Inviting every citizen to support sustainability is powerful and #ADayWithoutWaste will encourage everyone to take a closer look at how lifestyle choices can help achieve the mission of a world with zero waste,” will.i.am said about his involvement. “Each of us has the power to make better choices every day. Ekocycle is proud to team with Global Citizen to encourage every person to make more sustainable choices, including seeking out and using products that contain recycled materials.”
