Small Actions Add Up to Real Change!
This is what you’ve been looking for… a fun way to add or practice Earth-friendly habits
I’m excited about this activity! Please read about the 2017 EcoChallenge and join the UNLESS Team!
This October, the Northwest Earth Institute (NWEI) invites you to take on a personal sustainability challenge, and join thousands of other participants as we prove that small actions add up to real change during the 2017 EcoChallenge.
EcoChallenge provides the tools and inspiration to turn intention into action, and gives you an easy, fun way to reduce your impact on the planet while contributing to a healthy, vibrant, and sustainable future.
The idea is simple: EcoChallengers choose their challenge, set their goals and then take action for two weeks. The social support created by participating with thousands of other EcoChallengers, along with friendly competition and earning points for success, help to turn actions into habits over the course of the challenge. The ultimate goal is that EcoChallengers discover that taking action to reduce their impact and improve their communities is simpler than they thought, and sustainable in the long-term.
NWEI believes change should be fun, and created the EcoChallenge with this in mind. For nearly 25 years, we have helped make change more possible, more social, and more fun by helping people connect with their communities and take action, together.
In addition to being fun, EcoChallenge inspires participants to renew their commitment to green living. EcoChallenge is free and open to everyone. We invite anyone looking to make an impact or dive deeper into living sustainably to join the movement at 2017.
Participants can sign up as a team captain and engage their workplace, school, neighborhood or community, or join the NWEI Community Team.
