    The EcoChallenge platform enables our team to easily share our “aha!” moments and stories from throughout the Challenge. I encourage all of our teammates to post frequently
    – feed updates inspire others to take action and make a difference!

    • Hey Kristen,

      Thanks so much for encouraging your teammates to do that. We see a lot of those moments shared on the feed, and we're excited to read each and every one!

    Common wisdom says it takes at least two weeks to change a habit: 
    if you canstick with a new behavior for 14 days in a row, you’re a lot more likely to keepit up forever. EcoChallengers share their progress and earn points for taking action. The combination of collective inspiration, camaraderie and friendly competition makes change a little easier — and a lot more fun.

    This challenge is to choose actions to reduce your impact and stick with them
    for 2 weeks. You pick your Challenge and set a goal that stretches your comfort zone and makes a difference for you, your community and the planet.

    Every day we're inching closer to “go time”  — we're now less than two weeks until the start of the 2017 EcoChallenge!
