Small Actions Add Up to Real Change!

During the EcoChallenge we challenge you to change a habit that benefits you, your community and the planet. You choose your challenge, then earn points for completing your actions, engaging your community and sharing your story. Your points add up to demonstrate your impact, and help your team win EcoChallenge competitions. Here’s how you can earn points leading up to and during the challenge:
