Looking for better engagement and more community results? Host a challenge at work, at your school, or in your community. Check out the Better Bag Challenge to give up plastic bags for a year. You can also create your own challenge focused on recycling, composting, energy consumption or alternative transportation. Help your community make more environmentally conscious decisions by encouraging everything from biking to reducing waste.
Gather signatures for a petition or letters calling for action and send them to your local representative. You could ask for official town or city recognition of June 8th as World Oceans Day or focus on a local or national environmental issues. By gathering enough signatures, or writing a letter on behalf of your organization (or a group of individuals), you could make World Oceans Day officially celebrated in your community. Hawaii Girl Scout Troop 401 has an inspiring success story about this!
