Watch this new video from the remarkable founder of Natracare: Susie Hewson. She ponders all the things we can do to help nurture and protect the environment (and each other too) during her cycle ride to work! I also love the shout out to Project Green Challenge at then end. We are so honored to have them on board with our TTG efforts. I adore these women and this company.
Hey, Students! Win $5K, Dorm Makeover and More
The new Project Green Challenge calls on all high school and college students to improve themselves and the environment with one “challenge” each day for 30 days, starting Oct. 1.
These challenges will be based on a daily theme and come complete with resources, tips, a glossary, experts, videos and more. There are even green, greener, and greenest levels, which students can complete and share with their peers on ProjectGreenChallenge.com utilizing Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
The amazing prizes up for grabs include a $5,000 college scholarship, $1,000 Whole Foods Market gift card, weekend trip for two to southern California, bicycle courtesy of Natracare, full eco-dorm or room makeover, a year’s supply of Nature’s Path breakfast and snack foods, organic and ethical clothing, natural body products and more.
Ten finalists will be flown to San Francisco for an educational and inspiring two-day eco summit, called Green University, where leaders like Josh Dorfman and Rachel Sarnoff will be speaking. And, if students don’t want to go it alone, groups and even entire schools can sign-up to participate.
“I want to inform and inspire, showing my peers that small changes in our daily actions really can have a positive effect on our health and the environment,” says Erin Schrode, co-founder and spokeswoman for Teens Turning Green, who created Project Green Challenge.Teens Turning Green is a student-led movement devoted to education and advocacy around environmentally and socially responsible choices for individuals, schools and communities.

Check out Project Green Challenge now and register in time for the kick-off Oct. 1. You can also like them on Facebook and follow on Twitter for updates.
Naming all of the reasons that I love Natracare would fill a book. This brand is truly leading the world — and has been since 1989! A pioneer and global leader in innovation, not only does Natracare produce an excellent range of accessible and super useful (and necessary!) products, but the company lives by and promotes sustainability, belief in youth, commitment to the environment, promoting women and girls, and so much more. Need a model of corporate social responsibility? Of conscious capitalism? Of transparency? Look no further: Natracare is theanswer.
The Natracare SISTERS platform is a place where I can easily pass hours, reading the many brilliant (and super fun!) pieces on green living, wellbeing, our earth, ethics, eco fashion, value, myths, and on and on. I read a lot of “green” themed content and this stands out in a huge way. I am even featured as an Inspiring Sister, which was quite an honor!
Led by the most splendiferous sister duo of Theresa and Susie, Natracare has been an extraordinary supporter of Teens Turning Green over the years, believing in us and our many projects (which we support more than could ever be expressed). And they are powering Project Green Challenge! I received this beautiful piece from Susie today and wanted to share, as it sheds some light on the genuine heart and soul behind this phenomenal company.
“Natracare is hugely proud to be a sponsor of Project Green Challenge. This youth-led project is already inspiring and mobilising the masses from all different backgrounds and regions across the states to engage and involve themselves in environmental issues. As a brand of organic and natural feminine hygiene products we advocate that small and careful daily choices are the way towards an eco-friendly lifestyle. With so much greenwashing and misinformation around, the participants of PGC will learn valuable insights and research that will provide them with the tools to be more discerning shoppers and worldly citizens.”
*And because I know many of you will ask… no, I was not paid or anything of the sort to write this post. This is the truth. I love Natracare and all that the company stands for and want to share this excellent model of success and goodness with others.
