Plastic Free July EcoChallenge

Congrats, Team ZNE!

We aren’t lion when we say we're impressed by your actions throughout July! Out of 224 teams, ZNE came in 14th place. Take a look at the Challenge's collective impact

Plastic Free July may have concluded, but plastic pollution continues to have a major impact on the Earth. So, keep the momentum going! Use the skills you’ve honed this month to make a permanent impact, and challenge yourself to find new ways to make a difference.

Join the movement to refuse single-use plastics. The Plastic Free Ecochallenge is a month-long effort for all of us to reduce our single-use plastic consumption. Discover, learn, and explore new ways to take care of wildlife and the world we all share.

Last year, Zoo New England came in 8th place out of over 300 teams. Sign up now and help us start climbing the leaderboard!

Challenge Accepted! Join Today

In this friendly competition, you’ll connect with other teams, share your progress in the social feed, earn points for taking action, and watch the impact you make add up in realtime! The EcoChallenge website guides you through ways to avoid plastic on an everyday basis, offering tips and encouragement throughout the process. Choose ‘everyday’ or ‘one-time’ actions from a collection of 65+ suggested actions (shown here), or get creative and create your own plastic-free actions! Make sure to check in each day of the challenge to ensure that your actions are tallied in our collective impact and that you score points for every action completed.

See how four weeks of learning and action can add up to a lifetime of positive change for you, your community, and the planet!
