Let’s Have A Green year!

Did you make a new year’s resolutions this year? Resolutions can be overwhelming or feel unrealistic. We get it. The good news is, you can make resolutions all year long and they don’t need to be complicated. They can be the simplest habit changes. Plus, we want to help! In fact, we are challenging you to be greener in 2019. And, we broke our challenge up into manageable chunks, giving you one green focus area per month.

Why Participate in the Greener Year Challenge?

The goal of the greener year challenge is to not only protect and enhance our local environment, but also to make an impact on the entire planet. At BARC, we call this mindset, “Think Global. Act Local.” Believe it or not, every action you take (large and small) makes a significant impact on our environment. When you participate in the Greener Year Challenge you will be joining a community of like-minded locals working to make greener choices in their own lives. We will support each other by sharing our experiences on social media with the hashtag #greeneryearchallenge. Plus, we will send updates and reminders throughout the year to keep you accountable.
