How to apply for Trash to Cash Challenge?

There are three basic steps to follow:

  1. Prepare yourself: Create a product or products out of things that would otherwise be discarded, such as plastic bottles, scrap paper, and so on. Keep in mind to weigh the rubbish you collect.
  2. Day of Sales: On Sales Day, Saturday, July 2, sell as many of the product(s) as you can. You only have one day to make as much money as possible!
  3. Send your entry: Make a brief video of your adventure and post it on social media. Please fill out the short submission form, including a link to your video and photographs, and tell them how much waste you saved, what product you developed, and how much money you made.

From July 2, 2022, the actual submission form will be available on the Teach A Man To Fish- Trash To Cash Challenge website. An example of a submission form may be found here.
