Mohsin's actions

Freshwater + Oceans

Use a Reusable Water Bottle

Itr's estimated over a billion water bottles are thrown away each year. Even if they were recycled, that still uses energy and resources from the earth. I will use a reusable bottle and stop purchasing bottled water, saving 3 disposable plastic bottle(s) a day.

COMPLETED 10
DAILY ACTIONS

Climate + Air

Use Muscle Power

I will cut my car trip mileage by only taking necessary trips, and I will only use muscle-powered transportation for all other trips.

COMPLETED 14
DAILY ACTIONS

Land + Forests

Explore My Area

When we explore natural spaces around us, our connections with them change. I will spend 10 minutes exploring a new area around my neighborhood, office, or campus (e.g., park, water body, nearby trail, community garden, green space, etc.).

COMPLETED
ONE-TIME ACTION

Land + Forests

Borrow Before I Buy

Why buy something I will only use once or a few times if someone nearby has it for me to borrow, and why not share something I have that someone may only need a few times a year? To reduce my consumption and waste, I will create or support the sharing economy with friends, family, colleagues or neighbors.

COMPLETED
ONE-TIME ACTION

Land + Forests

Keep My Community Clean

At times it may not feel like it's up to us to keep our community clean and healthy, but we all have a role to play. Each day I am outside, I will pick up any litter I see.

COMPLETED 11
DAILY ACTIONS

Climate + Air

Calculate My Carbon Impact

Carbon emissions can show up in many surprising ways in our life. I will calculate the carbon emissions associated with my household and consider how lifestyle changes could reduce the carbon footprint and impacts on the environment.

COMPLETED
ONE-TIME ACTION

Biodiversity + Wildlife

Learn about Native Species

The world is full of unique species. I will spend 10 minutes each day learning what the native plants and wildlife are in my region.

COMPLETED 15
DAILY ACTIONS

Biodiversity + Wildlife

Invest in Nature

A healthy world needs both our daily actions and support from larger systems. I will spend 30 minutes learning about how I can use my investments and savings to advance environmental sustainability.

COMPLETED
ONE-TIME ACTION

Biodiversity + Wildlife

Beauty and Personal Products

Beauty and personal products can create a lot of waste. I will spend 20 minutes learning about the beauty and body products I use to see if they are refillable or recyclable. If not, I will reach out to the manufacturer to advocate for those options.

UNCOMPLETED
ONE-TIME ACTION

Climate + Air

Choose Renewable Energy

Renewable energy options are becoming more widespread and accessible. Not only are they good for the planet, they can help save money as well. I will sign up for my utility company's clean/renewable energy option. If my utility does not offer one, I will contact them to advocate for this option in the future.

COMPLETED
ONE-TIME ACTION

Land + Forests

30 for 30 in Nature

Studies have shown that when we spend consistent time in nature, our health improves, our creativity increases, and our connection to the planet gets stronger. Each day of the Ecochallenge, I will spend 30 minutes outside (in a large or small patch of nature), then share my observations, reflections, and learnings on the feed.

    Let's all stand together and help each other in making earth cleaner and nice for us humans and other animals.
    Small steps like using personal bottles will count in too. Thank you!

    It is a very good idea if we all can start using our personal water bottles instead of these temporary plastic bottles which are harmful for animals and takes years to decompose!

      Indeed, it’s often times hard as we find so many plastic bottles around us, even in the office. But a continuous effort needs to be made. At least to recycle if we use single use plastics!

    Hi everyone, one of the small step towards a green lifestyle is that I have decided to use vehicle as least as possible. Either walk or use bicycle. These 2 things have proven many benefits to our body and for sure ZERO emissions.

    Because of this Eco challenge I decided to go in the morning to see and enjoy the nature. There were so many things I realized that I didn't know even near my surroundings. So many new birds and other animals were there that I didn't know were there. Let's try our best to go out and look for new animals and birds and embrace nature!

    As I walked down a road, there was a pond where more than 10 ducks live. Sadly, I came across some of the home-rubbish that has made it's way to that lake making it dirty and can be dangerous for those ducks. Let's start talking about this and make our water clean. Let's make our animals safe! Let's make our Nature safe and pure!

      @CHUN BEE KOK That is so true, we need to start talking to them for sure

      only those selfish people will do this(litter around) and spoil the nice view and environment. If those people can change their behavior, that will help the mother earth.

    This month I have started to use more cloth-made bags than the polythene bags as they are reusable and more eco friendly. Sad-Fact: About 1 Million turtles die each year due to plastic. Let's give right to other animals and let nature thrive.

    Great, I have started to minimize the use of tissues everyday. Once we start observing we will realize that most of our tissue needs can be replaced with hand towels. These small changes can for sure bring a positive change overall!

    Hi everyone, to help encourage the use of recycled cans among friends&family I made caligraphy dip pens using some cans. Hope you see the image I have uploaded and also make some calligraphy pens for yourselves. The Pens are really good when dipped with ink and you can really practice some good calligraphy with these!! Remember when dealing with cans they are dangerous because of their sharp parts. So children must be very careful and should not do it by themselves.
