ABOUT PEOPLE'S ECOCHALLENGE
The People's Ecochallenge is a 21-day challenge to take action for a better shared future. From October 5 – October 26, 2022, we committed to trying and doing new things. We thought about and acted on proven solutions through five new categories based on sustainable climate actions: regenerating nature, nourishing food, balancing consumption, cultivating communities and enacting equity.
Fun actions encourage new habits. Small steps lead to big change. Together, we build a sustainable world and a healthy planet.
"Participating in the Ecochallenge for the past 5 years has really made me aware of the impact my lifestyle choices have on the environment, sustainability, and fellow humans. I have made small but meaningful and lasting changes that I believe will help create a better future for not only me but future generations."
"I've been vegan for almost 2 years to help the planet, but I want to see what else I can do to help our planet! I'm so excited to see so many people taking steps to help our planet thrive!"
"I have always taken so much from this Earth that I want to spend the rest of my life giving back. The Ecochallenge gives me so many great ways to do this. And I love going on this journey with a whole community of like minded people, hearing about their challenges and successes."
"I love that this challenge holds me accountable!"
"I'm grateful that the Ecochallenge helped turn my thinking about supporting my local food pantry to ACTUALLY taking action to do so!"
"This challenge was a life changing experience. I am embarrassed to admit just how ignorant I have been. I feel like I have developed habits from this challenge that will be sustainable in the long run and help make a contribution to making things better."
"I found at least one item to donate each day (many days several items) and donated over 50 items to a local charity during the People's ecochallenge."
"I loved learning about my local pollinators!! I unfortuantely wasn't able to plant any native flowers since I don't have a yard but I did help distribute milkweed seeds!!"
keep learning. keep taking action.
keep creating a better shared future with us.
