Northwest Earth Institute’s EcoChallenge in October

Change can be tough, and sometimes it takes a kick-start to make it happen. Every October, the NWEI challenges you to choose one action to reduce your environmental impact and stick with it for two weeks. As an individual or with a team, 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 EcoChallenge is an opportunity to change your life for good. Common wisdom says it takes two weeks to change a habit: 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. EcoChallengers share their progress online, and the combination of collective inspiration, camaraderie and friendly peer pressure makes change a little easier–and a lot more fun.
You choose your EcoChallenge. 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. What will you do?
