Here is how joining the Earth Day Challenge can help you fit more climate actions into your daily life.

An Earth Day Challenge


There are two ways to solve the climate crisis.

  1. One is to gradually change the energy supply from fossil fuels to renewable sources. That can take a long time.
  2. The other way is to reduce our demand for energy. That may mean using alternative transportation, turning lights off when not in use, adjusting the thermostat, reduce use of plastic, and many of the 54 actions listed in this Challenge. These changes have an immediate effect, allowing us to reach our goal of net zero much sooner.

Many of us are already taking actions to some degree, but we can take MANY MORE ACTIONS to make an even greater impact.

Our Story

This project was originally conceived in 2007 as a Girl Scout project to save energy at home. It has seen many iterations while branching out to include schools and the local community. In 2022 we are expanding the circle to make an even bigger impact on our planet, Earth.
