Al Gore's got an Oscar. More than 1,000 groups across the country rallied for Climate Change awareness this past Saturday during the grassroots Step It Up 2007 campaign. Earth Day is right around the corner. What better time to run an updated version of the Slate/TreeHugger Green Challenge?
If you're new to the idea of a carbon diet, welcome. If you participated in the Challenge last fall, welcome back. We know our first effort wasn't perfect, and thanks to your feedback about the first run, we've made some changes. This time, the Green Challenge will take place over seven weeks, with brief weekly quizzes (and no monster exams at the beginning or end). You'll still of course have the chance to shed carbon pounds by making pledges to reduce your footprint, and at the end of the Challenge, we'll compile your overall results. You can think of the new and improved Challenge as a diet--if you've got a heavy carbon load--or as an upkeep program to keep you committed to staying slim. The Green Challenge Starts again today, with our Transportation segment. We hope you'll cruise over and check it out. ::Slate/TreeHugger Green Challenge Intro ::Transportation
