Go Green Nation’s Conservation Challenge

Posted by Henry Taksier, June 2, 2010

GoGreenNation would like to challenge you to see how many ways you can reduce your consumption of natural resources. In the process, you’ll save money and reduce your footprint on the planet.

We’re focusing on Energy, Water, and Waste.

We can reduce our carbon footprint and natural resource usage by developing more efficient habits. Through conservation, we can cut back our energy needs by 15 to 45 percent; we can save about half of the water we use; and we can reduce our waste by 50 to 80 percent. All of these reductions will result in cost savings, energy reductions, emission reductions and a cleaner planet. If we can make these changes to our habits, better solutions will become even more viable because of our reduced demand for energy and resources. This is the best place for us to start on a path toward a healthier future, and we can begin right now.

If you (as an individual, organization, or business) would like to participate in the challenge, you can use the following questionnaire to track your progress and its accompanying spreadsheet to learn about others’ progress and compare it to yours.

Let us know if you have any ideas or if your business or organization can provide information, assistance, incentives or services to help others in the community participate in this Conservation Challenge.
