You may remember from the "Using Trello to Create a Ripple of Change" published back in May, that I am involved in a community group called "Happy Ocean". Happy Ocean is a grassroots organization made up of Prince Edward Island residents, from all walks of life, with a common goal of creating a ripple of change to help preserve the precious gifts of our oceans, island, and planet.
For the month of December, we are launching a Festive Plastic-Free Challenge. Each day has a green action you can make towards a zero-waste lifestyle. Our Social Media Team will be posting each day in December - sharing information and inspiration on ways you can complete the daily challenge.
The Happy Ocean team used Trello to shared ideas for the challenge, develop the calendar and each daily action. Happy Ocean aimed to keep the calendar neutral however you will see on Day 6 the mention of a Christmas Tree. If you don't celebrate Christmas or another holiday in December, you can substitute this day for another green action. We had a Challenge back in June and some individuals used the calendar like a Bingo card, where they crossed off actions each day in no particular order. There are no rules, every action makes a difference.
Here is a link to the Festive Calendar on Google Docs. Please share with your colleagues, friends and family. We would love to hear from you on whether you plan to participate and what region you are from.
"Random Acts of Green" is also doing a Jolly Green Holiday Challenge for the month of December. 'Tis the season to be Jolly (and Green). Many of the Jolly Green Holiday Challenge ideas have direct or related actions that you can log on their App. You can earn Green Points for each activity and redeem them for green products, services and experiences. You can also gift these points to another if you want to Green it Forward. ;)
Here is how you can participate in the Random Acts of Green Jolly Green Holiday™ Challenge:
-Log, track and record your “Green Acts” on the app!
