Care2's Earth Week Challenge
Update: Thank you to everyone who participated in the Earth Week Challenge! And for everything you do to make a difference for the Earth!Sign PetitionSign Petition
Also, special congratulations to Jenny, Alice, and Matthew who were chosen at random to receive a special goody bag of Earth Day items!
Even when we try to be mindful of our impact on the environment, there's always something more we could be doing to simplify our lives, conserve precious resources and protect the earth from environmental degradation.
That's why this Earth Day, we're encouraging our members to take the Care2 Earth Week Challenge!
What's involved? By signing the pledge, you commit to simplify your life by making up to five of the lifestyle choices listed below for a week. Starting April 22, you would:
1) Give up all single use drink bottles. (Bottled water, sodas, etc.)
2) Not use paper or plastic shopping bags. Instead, bring your own canvas bags.
3) Save electricity by cutting back TV to an hour a day and turning the thermostat down by two degrees.
4) Replace two car trips with walking, biking or public transportation.
5) Go vegetarian.
And because making a difference requires all of us to work together, tell at least two people about this challenge and ask for their support. That way we can build a community of conservation.
So celebrate Earth Day and participate in the challenge. Three participants chosen at random will win a special Care2 tote full of Earth Day goodies, and who knows -- you may find that it's not so hard to make a difference for the planet.
