We know that change can be tough. That’s why each fall the NWEI EcoChallenge makes it easy to recommit to your eco-friendly lifestyle and take your eco-consciousness to the next level.

The EcoChallenge is an opportunity to change your life for good. You pick a category—water, trash, energy, food or transportation—and set a goal that stretches your comfort zone and makes a difference for you and the planet.  The possibilities are endless and the collective impact is impressive.

Rich parked his car for two weeks. Mark went on a 100-mile diet. Carrie cut her family’s trash by 80%. Steve set up a grey water system and saved 150 gallons of water. Over the course of the two-week EcoChallenge the car miles converted to alternative transportation, waste diverted from our landfills, energy and water saved, and food sourced sustainably adds up to substantial impact.  But the impact doesn’t stop on October 15th when the EcoChallenge concludes because if you can stick with a new behavior for 14 days in a row, you’re a lot more likely to keep it up forever.

And that’s the exactly kind of change we’re looking to inspire!

The EcoChallenge is still 3 months away, but it’s the perfect time to start considering your next eco move. This October, we challenge you to choose one action to reduce your environmental impact and stick with it for two weeks.

Stay tuned for more information, stories from past EcoChallengers, and registration details coming this summer.
