Join the "NCW Sustainable Community Team" for EcoChallenges next year
Although we're not currently offering the NCW EcoChallenge, we invite you to join our team "NCW Sustainable Community" for EcoChallenges put on throughout the year by EcoChallenge.org. In 2020 we participated in their Earth Day EcoChallenge in April and their Plastic Free EcoChallenge in July. Join us again in 2021!
The NCW EcoChallenge was a community-wide competition for Chelan and Douglas county residents. Participants challenged themselves to try new, environmentally-friendly behaviors for two weeks. You choose the behaviors you want to commit to doing (from dozens of options) and report your progress online daily. In addition to learning how to reduce your carbon footprint, you have a chance to win valuable individual prizes and cash for the nonprofit agency of your choice!
- Individual prizes (over $3,000 worth) for those who logged in to report their progress the day before
- The top FIVE teams won cash for their favorite local non-profit. If you work for a non-profit, this is a great opportunity to create a team and raise money while challenging yourself and co-workers to being more eco-friendly!
The EcoChallenge is a Northwest Earth Institute program facilitated by Sustainable Wenatchee. Our main sponsors were Chelan County PUD, Link Transit, and Waste Management. For other past sponsors, visit the website.
