Challenge : Reward Your Peeps or Biz for Completing Eco Challenge


To give an XOEarth Challenge:

1/ Ask a friend, business or anyone else to take an eco logical action.

2/ Honor that person or biz for completing that eco action -- with your talent, with a gift, with an XOEarth Award or any other XOEarth Honors that you get from here.

3/ Optional: Ask the person or biz if they would prefer something else from you, instead of what you have offered to give them.

When giving someone a challenge, it is your choice whether you tell the person or biz in advance that you would like to Honor them for completing the challenge, or you may choose to surprise them with the XOEarth Honors or XOEarth Award once they have taken the eco action.

Challenge examples include requesting and then rewarding friends for taking actions that protect our climate such as:

burn little or no gasoline

eat a plant based diet - vegan or vegetarian

make your job good for the planet - or quit and get a green job

live close to work

make your home energy efficient

turn the air conditioner way down little or off

turn the heater way down or off

buy solar or wind energy credits for home and biz

burn little or no jet fuel

use alternative transportation

volunteer with eco organizations

donate to environmental organizations

donate to eco candidates

canvass, lobby and vote to eco our government

make love, not babies

quit your job to take eco logical jobs

show your profession or industry how to make it green

boycott over-packaged products - unless it is not possible

honor and reward others for their eco work every day

boycott single serving products - unless it is not possible

grow some food for yourself and others

boycott single use products - unless it is absolutely not possible

carbon offset part of - or all - of our energy use

consider the Green Minute Rule in every decision

put on tats, tags and/or style to rep Team Earth

speak and promote eco logic everywhere, every day

get eco sexy

It is especially crucial that we challenge and honor others for taking actions that help stop global warming.

If you have some good ways that you call on and cheer on your peeps to take ecological actions that you think we should add to our XOEarth Honors page, please and contact us.

Another way to invite others to take a challenge is to print and give out the XOEarth Challenge notes - found at the bottom of the XOEarth Awards page.

When making a challenge, sometimes it works to say, "if you would like some other reward from me, instead of __(whatever you are offering)__, what would it be, in return for the eco action that you take?"

    Stele, I really like this idea of making a challenge and then giving to the person as an appreciation for their completion …and I know you do this already. Thank you …and I will try to see what I can give when I ask people to do things.
    Blessings for all your work, Bonnie

      Aloha Bonnie!! I think I need to be resolute in making more XOEarth Challenges. Plus, I am usually going to offer a *little* award that is guaranteed if the person completes an eco challenge – as well giving them the chance to win a *big* XOEarth cape, XOEarth hat, $400 or one of the other Perks [ ]. Merci beaucoup for being a super friend and fellow Peaceful Earth Warrior. The little salad you made for me at the Farmers Market was just what I needed. Lots of Love and Peace, Stele ~ XOEarth Man
