Mini Challenge Pledges

Water Resilience Mini Challenge

Meat (especially beef) is among the most water-intensive foods to produce, so reducing our meat consumption will have a huge impact on our water footprint.

Taking a more sustainable form of transportation is one of the best ways to reduce our carbon footprints while also helping to improve our community’s air quality and potentially getting some exercise.

That’s why these Water Resilience Champions stepped up and pledged to go meatless for a day during Spring Break.

Connection to Nature Mini Challenge

There is an ever growing body of research that supports how connecting to nature is good for us. Some of those benefits include: increased positive emotions, promotion of creativity, improvement in social relationships, reduction in stress levels and lowered heart rates - all things our students would greatly benefit from!

Making the time to connect with the natural world, and also reminding those around us to do the same, can create positive feedback loops throughout our communities. That's why these Connection to Nature Champions stepped up and pledged to spend time connecting to nature every day for the week of February 26th.

Zero Waste Mini Challenge

Single-use items (such as coffee cups, plastic bottles, plastic bags, and to-go food utensils) have a short life span before they are tossed in the trash, but they use a lot of energy and resources to make. Given their huge environmental impact, every person reducing their use of these single-use items makes a difference.

That's why these Zero Waste Champions stepped up and pledged to carry a reusable mug, bottle, bag, or food utensil for the week of January 29.
