An EarthE Challenge includes:
1/ asking a friend or biz to take an eco action, and
2/ rewarding the friend or biz for completing the eco action -- using your talent and/or giving them some other reward that you get from here or elsewhere.
3/ (optional) asking the friend or biz if they would like 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 are going to give them an EarthE reward for completing the challenge, or you may choose to surprise them with the reward once they have taken the eco action.
Challenge examples include requesting and then rewarding friends for taking climate actions such as: driving less; car tune-ups; asking leaders for 40 mpg; using renewable energy; using compact fluorescents; water heater set at 120 degree; replacing inefficient appliances; planting a tree; recycling/reducing/reusing; joining an eco org.
Check out the Sierra Club energy website for more climate action challenge ideas.
If you like em, use the Fast or Slow Global Warming Awards to reward friends for their anti-global-warming actions.
You can also call on EarthE 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. EarthE Man will then give advance EarthE Awards to the audience who can then fill-out and give those awards to each other for completing the eco challenge. If you prefer, EarthE Man can also come back and award the EarthE Awards to those who complete their eco challenges, live or via video.
Or, if EarthE Man is busy saving the planet somewhere else and can't make it in person or via video, for either your challenge and/or awards event, become an EarthE Man or Woman as well, and then make those eco challenges and/or give those EarthE Awards yourself.
Another way to invite others to take a challenge is to print-out and give out the EarthE Awards/ Money Challenge notes.
You may want to add this to your challenge to make it more interesting, say, "or, if you would prefer something else me instead, what would it be, in return for taking that crucial eco action."
