EcochallengeJOIN LANE'S ECOCHALLENGE TEAM! WIN PRIZES! MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
October 7, 2014
The EcoChallenge is an annual event that challenges people to choose one action to reduce their environmental impact and stick with it for two weeks – October 15-29. Pick a category—water, trash, energy, food, transportation or civic engagement—and set a goal that stretches your comfort zone and makes a difference for you and the planet. EcoChallengers accrue points for engagement (everything from succeeding at your EcoChallenge to engaging others in the event earns points). At the end of the EcoChallenge your points will increase your odds of winning fun raffle prizes! Registration instructions can be found here. It takes about 5 minutes to register.

Please also come to our kickoff party on Friday, October 10th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at the Learning Garden. Snacks made from campus grown produce will be served at the party. Contact: Jennifer Hayward.
