Join us! Virtual Earth Week Challenge for Companies

Impetus Team


Last year, for our first-ever virtual Earth Week celebration, we let the Impetus Digital team take (paid) time during the week to do something nice for the environment. We gave a few general suggestions (clean up trash, plant something, etc.), but everyone could choose their own activities. We then awarded prizes for the most impactful project, best photo, most creative project, as well as a random draw that people could enter by sharing photos, tips, links, and resources. This year, we’re taking it a couple of steps further! We’ve put together a list of detailed challenges for the team to complete. Each challenge will earn them points, which will then become entries into a draw for several eco-friendly prizes (up to 3x the value compared to last year!)

This year, we’re also hoping other companies will join in the fun (if you do, send us a message and we’ll make sure to mention you in our next Earth Week blog post!). Below are some suggestions for challenges, but feel free to adapt these to fit your team’s situation!
