About the Challenge
Engage in the Green Leader Challenge to conserve valuable resources, reduce your environmental impact, and create a healthy home.
Whether you're a renter or homeowner, with a big or small budget, the Green Leader Challenge will help you take action. From small behaviors like shopping with reusable bags to big projects like installing a rain garden, the Challenge provides the how-to and motivation to move forward and make a difference.
How It Works
Find actions that are right for your household based on cost, potential savings, and ease of completion. Add actions you're interested in to your Actions To Do List, or mark complete actions you've already accomplished. For each action completed, you'll earn points toward your goal: 50 points to certify as a Green Leader. Certified Green Leaders get recognized and entered into annual prize drawings.
