The Green Challenge is back this November!

The Green Challenge encourages individuals, families, schools, organizations, and businesses to challenge themselves to reduce their environmental footprint. Participants choose the introductory or advanced challenge and commit to complete actions in six different areas: food, waste, energy, water conservation, transportation and climate change over 30 days.

The introductory challenge will inspire people who are just beginning their journey to reducing their environmental footprint. It includes challenges such as reducing certain single-use plastics, washing all laundry in cold water, not idling your car and meal planning.

The advanced challenge will help participants to significantly reduce their environmental footprint. It includes actions such as avoiding plastic, biking, walking, taking transit or carpooling to school or work, reducing food waste and using strategies to have constructive conversations about climate change.

We’ll provide you with tips and materials to help you succeed in each area, and you will join a Facebook group that will help people share ideas and stories throughout the challenge.

Dates: Tuesday 12 November to Thursday 12 December 2019.

Registrations are now open!
