Standard

Have you seen Natracare’s new microsite about PGC? You definitely will want to check it out today and throughout the coming month of the Challenge.

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.

Teens Turning Green

Our  friend Erin Schrode from Teens Turning Green is one of the brilliant young minds behind Project Green Challenge, a powerful, diverse, and far-reaching movement inspiring young people to take action and protect our planet.

Here is a exert from their website about the movement:

This October, Teens Turning Green is energizing high school and college students across the country to participate in Project Green Challenge, a 30-day green lifestyle initiative. The Challenge will raise awareness about conscious living, informed consumption and the collective impact of each of our actions.

With the guidance of eco experts, industry leaders and the PGC Guide to Living Green, participants will discover how fun, easy and effective eco living can be.

How it Works

Throughout October a daily green challenge will be outlined onProjectGreenChallenge.com and in an email delivered to each participant who has signed up . Each challenge will be supported with resources, tips, facts and a green glossary.

Over the course of the 30-day Challenge, participants will share their responses to challenge tasks on ProjectGreenChallenge.com utilizing Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Get Your Green Diploma

Contestants who complete the 30-day Challenge can apply for the Challenge Finals. Ten finalists will be selected to participate in Green University, a two-day eco summit held in California this December. Students will be flown to San Francisco where they will learn from esteemed eco leaders, present experiences from the 30-day Challenge, and work together to create unique platforms for social action.This new slate of projects will be implemented by Teens Turning Greenand youth nationwide in 2012.

Challenge Champion

A panel of judges will name one finalist as the Project Green Challenge Champion. The winner will receive a one-of-a-kind prize package and the opportunity to work with Teens Turning Green and its partners in the coming year.
