Welcome to the EcoChallenge

October EcoChallenge is a 21-day sustainability engagement program. The challenge takes place October 3 - October 24, 2018. Participants track and share their progress online in a robust platform and earn points for taking action. The combination of collective action, camaraderie, and friendly competition makes change a little easier — and a lot more fun.

EcoChallenge provides tools and inspiration to turn intention into action, and gives participants a fun and social way to think about and act on proven solutions that make a difference for you, your community, and the planet. Over 100 actions within nine Challenge categories provide participants with diverse options to take action.

EcoChallenge is free and open to the public. Participants can join an existing team, create a new one, or join the Community team.

We believe the solution to the planet’s biggest challenges lies in the power of collective action.
