How this year’s Green Home Challenge works

Each week for a month, we’ll send you three options for a small project or quick daily activity to complete at home. Pick the challenge level that’s right for you. Whether you’re just getting started on sustainability or you’re an avid recycler, you can participate in the Green Home Challenge!

Some of the challenge actions you’ll choose from include:

  • hunting down energy vampires in your home
  • sleuthing out how food gets wasted
  • banishing junk mail from your box
  • brewing up a meal plan
  • casting out dangerous cleaning products

Add on optional mini quests to cross off quick wins at home, spot nature in your neighborhood, and explore Kirkland’s natural areas.
