It’s EcoChallenge Time! Northwest Earth Institute (NWEI), our sister organization, is launching their EcoChallenge for 2010. The EcoChallenge is a yearly event that creates awareness of the ways we can generate positive impact on the world around us. NWEI also created the EcoChallenge as a fundraiser for their educational programs. The participants collect pledges from supporters and sponsors of participating companies. 100% of money goes towards NWEI’s programs and is tax deductible.
The EcoChallenge has several different categories to choose from: Water Conservation, Energy Efficiency, Sustainable Food Options, Alternative Transportation, and Trash Reduction.
The EcoChallenge begins October 1st and continues until October 15th – giving you plenty of time to think of a realistic challenge, create a team, and start to get competitive with friends and family. Have fun with the EcoChallenge and become more aware of your positive impact on the world at the same time.
