Earth Week Challenge

Here's my little welcome video to the Earth Week Challenge!! I'm so thrilled that you will be joining our community over the next 5 days.


Hey love! 

Thank you for being here and joining this challenge. This video is a little longer then I'd hoped but here's the gist of it:

The fact that you are here means that you are committed to the good of this planet. And what an incredible group of humans we have! My heart is actually bursting already with the people posting photos about cleaning up the environment before this challenge has even begun! Seriously, are you guys even real? So incredible.! You can check out all the things people have been posting here - #earthweekchallenge2019. We’ve got well over 100 people signed up and participating which is absolutely incredible. (Not everyone is on social media or instagram and THAT's OK! - you can participate right here on the blog!)

I wanted to post this video to welcome you to the challenge, to let you know what to expect over the next 5 days! My invitation is that you open the email each morning, click the link to the blog post, perhaps you listen to the video (each day) while you are making breakfast or making your morning tea. Contemplate the theme of the day and then get involved! Participate by commenting on the blog post, sharing resources, asking questions, posting about what you're interested in implementing, what you've learned or what might be helpful information for others in the community. If you have resources to share on a topic, let us know! Let's share resources and information with each other each day! 

For a chance to win one of our awesome prizes, post once a day on instagram or Facebook (using the hashtag #earthweekchallenge2019 so that we can all see what each other is sharing online!) Your post can be about anything to do with the topic of the day. Whether you're posting about what you've learned, what you'd like to implement moving forward, one of your favourite recipes or resources that you already love and want to spread that love. Whatever is relevant for you as we move through each day, it's such an individual journey for each person.

If you post all five days, you could win a sweet prize pack from @rasa_ayurveda or @sweetfloweringyogaandwellness, as well as an awesome zero waste prize pack from @cntrycupboard in Fenelon Falls, a prize from Green Street Peterborough and a FREE RETREAT from @sarovarayoga and a free month of unlimited yoga from @livingyogalove (Peterborough Living Yoga!)

In order to have a chance to win a prize you must be active and post on instagram (or Facebook) all 5 days using the hashtag #earthweekchallenge2019 (this is not a requirement to participate in the challenge, just to win one of our sweet prizes!) 

I'm really excited about this challenge and the positive ripple effects that each of us will make through space and time through this community and sharing resources. 

The challenge begins tomorrow! Take a moment to invite your friends or share it on your social media. The more people that join up the better! Thank you so much for being here. Leave me a comment below and let me know what you are most excited about for the challenge! 🙂
