EcoChallenge is a fun, free, no-pressure experience that shows you the very real impact you can make with small changes to your lifestyle. Northwest Earth Institute hosts this challenge from their online platform, The EcoChallenge platform allows participants to select sustainable-living actions to take on a daily basis and tracks the impact these actions have on the world. You even get credit for sustainable choices you already make!

Each year, the Sustainable Future Section calls on Section members and legal professionals statewide to challenge themselves and demonstrate the power of collective action. The 2020 EcoChallenge runs from October 7 through October 28. In such a hectic year, the EcoChallenge will remind you that your actions do make a difference. Join the team and see what you can do.


If you are already a Sustainable Future Section member, watch your email for the official invite to join the team. Click the link, set up your profile, and select your actions. Commit to eating more vegetables. Drink from a reusable coffee mug. Buy locally. There is a huge variety to choose from to score points for the team and the planet.

Did we mention a prize? Once you join the team, the first point-scoring action you take will automatically enter you into a raffle to win a fabulous prize. As if you need more reasons to join!

Once the challenge starts on October 7, sign in every day to track your actions. Joining the team is quick, free, and easy. You can do a lot, or you can do just a little. Sometimes, small changes can make a world of difference, especially when we do them together. In past years, the Sustainable Future Section team’s actions kept hundreds of plastic bottles and straws out of landfills, kept thousands of pounds of CO2 from entering the atmosphere, traveled hundreds of miles by bicycle, and saved hundreds of gallons of water. These are just examples of what we can do. Challenge yourself, and have fun. See you on the team!
