Hope is currently hosting its first ever dorm sustainability competition!
Dorms gain points by pledging to live more sustainably (I pledged to go vegetarian for a week), hosting a sustainability event, and showing enthusiasm. For example, liking the Hope Eco-Agents Facebook page, sharing a picture of a sustainability sign you made, etc.
Currently, Van Vleck Hall is in the lead!
The competition has been a lot of fun so far and taking a closer look about how our living habits affect the environment is intriguing.
Tonight I made a sustainability poster as my roommate and I added some decorations to our door for the competition.
The facts I put on the poster were from these awesome infographics I found on Pinterest that have some shocking facts on the way our living habits affect the world.
While this sustainability competition is lots of fun, it has also been a great eye-opener to the fact that if I change little aspects of the way I live it can improve my impact on the environment dramatically.
Take a look at those infographics and maybe you can tweak a few things in your life to live a bit more sustainably. Little changes make a big difference.
Thanks for reading!
