EcoChallenge: Join the team to change one habit that benefits you and the planet! 15-29 October 2015

You are invited to participate in this year’s EcoChallenge! For two weeks, 15-29 October 2015, EcoChallenge leads you and your team to change one habit to benefit both you and the planet. The EcoChallenge is a free annual event that encourages individuals and teams to pick a category—water, trash, energy, food, transportation, civic engagement, connect with the earth, or your own category —and set a goal that stretches your comfort zone and makes a difference for you, your community, and the planet.
