Portland Trail Blazers Live Greener EcoChallenge

blazers ecochallengeThe Blazers challenge you to choose actions that reduce your environmental impact and stick with it for 4 weeks. Through your participation, we can offset the carbon footprint and water impact for the Live Greener Game on April 3, 2019.

How does it work?

The Live Greener Challenge is a month-long sustainability engagement program presented by the Portland Trail Blazers in partnership with EcoChallenge.org and Daimler Trucks North America. The Challenge takes place April 1 – April 30, 2019. Participants track and share their progress online in a robust platform and earn points for taking action, which add up to prizes. The combination of collective action, camaraderie, and friendly competition makes change a little easier — and a lot more fun.
