Reward A Person or Business for Completing An Eco Challenge

To give an XOEarth Challenge:

1/ Ask a friend, acquaintance or biz to take an eco logical action.

2/ Reward that person or biz for completing that eco action -- using your talent and/or giving them some other reward that you get from here at XOEarth or somewhere else.

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

When giving someone a challenge, it is your choice whether you tell the person or biz in advance that you are going to Honor them for completing the challenge, or you may choose to surprise them with the XOEarth reward 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

For more ideas When making challenges, use the XOEarth Honors and XOEarth Awards to reward friends for their actions that help stop global warming.

You can also call on XOEarth Man to come and sing an eco challenge(s) at your biz, school or party, or he can appear via a custom video, or by teleconference. XOEarth Man will then give advance XOEarth Awards to the audience who can then fill-out and give those awards to each other for completing the eco challenge. If you prefer, XOEarth Man can also come back and award the XOEarth Awards to those who complete their eco challenges, live or via video.

Or, if you want to become an XOEarth Man or XOEarth Woman yourself at bizzes, schools or parties, that's great too. If you want XOEarth Man to help you or teach you some of his XOEarth Man's techniques, feel free to get a hold of him

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?"

  • Bonnie

    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
