The name ‘Banaclichet’ stands for Banana (French word for waist bag), Climate, and Waste.
It is a zero waste and no flying challenge.
It is also a great opportunity to change mentalities about:
> how natural resources are managed (water, energy, soil, metals),
> how much waste is produced and how it is managed,
> how we travel, move around and how it affects our environment
Banane / Waist bag
No trash, just two waist bags ('banane' in French) to carry our own waste
Living zero waste is the best way to reduce waste at source. Banaclichet challenge aims to show that it is possible to produce very little waste even when travelling. How? Practical advice is available in our articles (French only).
