The Northwest Earth Institute’s EcoChallenge is a two week event promoting sustainable living, and the power of taking one step toward a healthy, vibrant, sustainable future. Participating is simple—first, choose an EcoChallenge category–commit to saving water or energy, reducing the amount of trash that you generate, increasing alternative transportation use, boosting sustainable food purchases, or choose your own EcoChallenge.

You can take on the Challenge individually or as part of a team. By taking on an EcoChallenge, you’ll find out how to reduce your impact, create lasting new habits, have fun working toward your goals, and hopefully open up a dialogue about sustainability with your family and friends too.
