Greening the Orange Challenge

October is Campus Sustainability Month! To celebrate, we would like you all to participate in the Greening the Orange Challenge which challenges you to make a sustainable difference in your day to day actions. This challenge is open to all students, faculty and staff on campus. Follow the steps below on how to compete:

Step One

Follow @SustainableSU on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and visit the page each Monday in October to view the challenge for the week.

Step Two

Compete in the challenge by being an agent of change! Follow the week's specific challenge or take it a step further if its something you are already doing. For example, if the challenge is "use a reusable water bottle all week long" and you are already inseparable from your water bottle but always grab a cup of coffee in a disposable container--bring a reusable coffee mug or travel cup. The purpose of the challenge is to encourage you to make a change in your life that is sustainable!

Step Three

Take a photo or video of yourself completing the challenge and post on social media tagging @SustainableSU with #greeningtheorange to be eligible to win a prize. The more you post throughout the week, the higher your chances are of winning! *Be sure to make your post "Public" so we can see it!*

Week One

For week one of the #GreeningtheOrange Challenge we will start easy! Carry a reusable water bottle with you everyday! Don't forget to post your picture with #GreeningtheOrange!

Week Two

This week is all about local! Whether you shop local, eat local, or make your own, show them off!! Now is your time to brag and help support your local economy. Be sure to tag #GreeningtheOrange in order to win!

Week 3

Bring your old textiles to OCRRA's textile event! What a great way to donate your clothes or put them to good use if they can't be worn again! Learn more about the event by visiting, Snap a picture while you're there and be sure to tag #greeningtheorange!

Week 4

In order to take care of the planet, you have to also take care of yourself! For this week's challenge, you do you! Meditate, take a nap, participate in some yoga with Students of Sustainability! Whatever it may be, let us know with #Greeningtheorange!
