The 2018 Kind Consumer Challenge has come to a close - but it's never too late to start! Take a look at what our Challenge entailed, go at your own pace to explore each month's challenges. Use this worksheet to help you reach your goals!
Hello, and welcome to the Kind Consumer Challenge! You're here because you are a kind person who wants to infuse a bit more of that kindness into their everyday - in particular, through consumer habits such as what you buy, how you care for your things, how you dispose of things, your relationship with your stuff and money, and even how you invest. All of this has so much potential to change the world, but can be overwhelming...if we go alone, or if we try to do too much at once. The solution? Community, and thoughtful preparation to set us up for success. Let's take a deep dive, together, into one topic each month, and encourage each other toward changes that will make a big impact!
The beauty of this challenge is that it isn't a one-size-fits-all approach. You might take on 20 new habits each month. Or you might just dip your toe into one. Either way, I'm here to help - not because I've got it all figured out, but because - like you - I'm curious about how I can improve, and looking for manageable ways to make it happen. And I decided that instead of trudging through this journey on my own, I'd gather some friends to journey together.
Who: Kind people who seek to grow in their positive impact on the world through a healthier relationship with, and more intentional stewardship of, their money, possessions, and daily habits. If you feel overwhelmed or that you have a long way to go, you're in good company!
What: A series of personalized challenges related to monthly topics such as reducing plastic or paper use; ethical fashion, food, and investing; or green cleaning.
How we'll succeed: through community and smart preparation! Our Facebook group will be non-judgmental place to share resources, ideas, frustrations, and encouragements, because everything is more fun with friends. And, we'll take an entire week at the start of each month to prepare before diving into our topic. We'll take careful steps to research (to light a fire in our bellies and help us share our "why"), define (to determine individually which challenges we will tackle this month), and equip (to do any purchasing or research we need to be ready). We'll also share topics and ideas around product recommendations, how to bring our kids along on the journey, how to repair instead of replacing, etc.
